I am a postdoctoral researcher with the Center for Integrative Planetary Science and in the Department of Earth and Planetary Science at UC Berkeley. I defended my PhD in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Yale University in Spring 2020. I completed my B.A. in Geophysics and Applied Mathematics at UC Berkeley in 2015.
I am an experimental high-pressure mineral physicist. My current research pursuits involve chemical mixing (and de-mixing) in planetary interiors and melting of materials at high pressures.
My broader interests lie at the cross-section of physics, chemistry, materials science, and planetary science. This includes the science of "exotic" phase transformations, such as crystalline-to-amorphous, insulator-to-metal, liquid-liquid, etc. and their roles in planetary evolution.
