I am currently a Simons Junior Fellow at Columbia University, working with Professors Sanat Kumar and Kyle Bishop.

I received my Ph.D. in physics at the University of Pennsylvania where I was an American Association of University Women Fellow, working under the supervision of Professors Randall D. Kamien and Kathleen J. Stebe. My research focuses generally on phenomena observed in soft materials. Check out my Research page to find out more!

Before pursuing my doctorate, I studied at New York University, where I earned my BA in physics and philosophy. There, I was a junior research scientist, and I examined the sedimentation behavior of fibers with Professor David J. Pine.
