Associate Research Scholar/CPBF Fellow

Ph.D. in Physics 2021, Harvard University


I received my A.B. in Physics with a certificate in Biophysics from Princeton University, and my Ph.D. in Physics from Harvard University. I am interested in how brains encode sensory information and generate behavior, and how anatomical connectomes constrain experimentally observed whole-brain activity. In my graduate work in Dr. Aravinthan Samuel’s lab, I developed methods for recording and analyzing ensemble-level and whole-brain neural activity in the nematode C. elegans. Currently at Princeton, I study brainwide multi-sensory integration in the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster.
