Graduate Student

B.A. in Physics 2021, Harvard University 


I graduated from Harvard University with a B.A. in Physics. During my time at Harvard, I worked on a model to explain the timing of oscillations of the spindle during the first division in C. elegans. I also worked on photo-activation experiments to probe the dynamics of spindle/kinetochore bound microtubules. I am currently a first year student at Princeton in the Quantitative and Computational Biology PhD program. I hope to continue using physics to understand various biological processes, especially those concerning self organization and assembly.
