I am a PhD student in the Biophysics Graduate Group at the University of California, Berkeley. My advisor is George Oster. I am interested in dynamical systems and statistical mechanics, particularly applied to biology. This is intentionally a broad statement, as it's hard to find a biological puzzle that's not interesting!

I'm very thankful for the support I've received from an NSF IGERT fellowship from CiBER here at Berkeley. The existence of CiBER has done wonders to expand the already impressive amount of interdisciplinary resarch at UCB. If you have any interests in mechanics or bio-inspired engineering*, please do check it out.

Previously, I received my bachelors in mathematics and biology from New York University. I then explored the world (both academically and geographically) a bit. You can read about it all in my CV.

This is my favorite poem.


*If you're not sure you have any interests in mechanics, read Life at Low Reynolds Number (by Edward Purcell) and you will almost certainly develop them :)
