I am a PhD student in the Biophysics Graduate Group at the University of California, Berkeley. My advisors are George Oster and Padmini Rangamani.

I am interested in building computational models to understand the mechanisms underlying observed dynamics in complex biological systems. This is intentionally a broad statement: picking only one (or even a few) out of all the interesting biological puzzles is impossible -- there are just too many!

I am a member of the Center for Integrative Biomechanics in Education and Research here at Berkeley. 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 :)
