Who I Am

Welcome to my website! Here you will find information about my current research, my past projects, my future aspirations, my CV, and my hobbies (not physics).


A bit about me: I am a first year graduate student at UC Santa Barbara pursuing a Ph.D. in theoretical physics. I have a degree from Pomona College where I majored in physics, minored in math, and spent some of the best years of my life swimming for PPSD (Pomona's varsity swim team). I am driven by a desire to understand the world around me and to make an impact on the world. I enjoy coding, solving complex problems, reading, running, doing yoga, hiking, and spending time with my family and friends. At UCSB, I am a member of the BioShape lab, where I work on an open-source software (Geomstats) which develops tools for analyzing data which lie on manifolds. My current research applies this software to biological shape analysis. 

I am a Goldwater Scholar and an NSF Data Driven Biology Fellow. I received the UCSB Dean's fellowship from the Dean of Mathematical, Life, and Physical Sciences. I also ran my first marathon this spring.
