Math, computing, biology, physics

I use math to model and study systems in physics and biology.

I am completing my PhD in Applied Math from Harvard University, where I work with Chris Rycroft. In Fall 2022, I am joining the MIT Mathematics Department as an Instructor in Applied Math, where I’ll conduct research and teach.

My CV is here, and a longer bio is here.

Here are some examples of my research.
