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: Berkeley
