PhD in Biophysics 2022, University of Maryland


I received my Ph.D. in Biophysics from the University of Maryland. I am deeply interested in the biophysics of cells across length scales: from dynamic molecular scale processes that make up the living cells, to how cells interpret internal and external signals to form highly organized tissues. To study this, I have focused on optimizing and applying imaging methods that can probe many different physical parameters across several length scales. In my PhD work I have focused on the experimental investigation of biomechanics of cancer at the cellular level by applying Brillouin microscopy and complementary microrheology methods. Currently at Princeton, I use imaging methods to study the molecular regulation of multicellular pattern formation in the fruit fly.
