I am a PhD student in the Biophysics Graduate Group and the Center for Computational Biology at the University of California, Berkeley. My advisor is George Oster. I also work closely with Padmini Rangamani (Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering, UCSD). My research involves various problems in applied mathematics and theoretical biophysics.

I am also a member of the Center for Integrative Biomechanics in Education and Research. CiBER is awesome, and has served to elevate the already impressive amount of interdisciplinary collaboration here at Berkeley. Plus, they build really cool robots sometimes.

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 (last updated March 2015).

This is my favorite poem.

Where I am now: Oxford


22 February - 15 May: I will be away this semester at the University of Oxford for ongoing research in collaboration with the Berry Lab.

22-23 November 2014: I will be attending the Annual QB3 Computational and Genomic Biology Retreat in Marshall, CA.
Update: BFM wins the Best Talk Award!

19 November 2014: I got the chance to excitedly babble about bacterial mechanics in this interview with SIAM. [ SIAM Connect ]
