I graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a double major in Mechanical Engineering and Mathematics (2017). While in undergrad I ran multiple organizations including Tea with Teachers, MIT-ASME, and xFair – MIT’s Spring Career Fair. I also participated in multi-year research projects under the guidance of Professor Evelyn Wang, Professor Baratunde Cola, & Professor Pierre Lermusiaux.
I am currently a second year PhD student at the California Institute of Technology in the Engineering and Applied Sciences Division working under the guidance of Bren Professor of Computational Biology and Computing and Mathematical Sciences Lior Pachter, in the Pachter Lab. Under the 2017 Caltech Knapp and 2017 GEM Fellowship I study and develop single-cell genomics technologies. My interests range from applied mathematics, heat transfer, thermodynamics, continuum mechanics to all things computers.
In my free time I enjoy planning events such as Techstock 2018, building my own bicycle, playing chess, and hacking raspberry pi’s & arduinos. I am a member of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity and have passed the Fundamentals of Engineering exam to become a certified Engineer in Training (EIT).
I have a passion for the environment and nature and I work to ensure my research benefits her.
