PhD in Biophysics 2021, Harvard University


I received my PhD in Biophysics from Harvard University. I am broadly interested in exploring the mechanisms by which structures arise in biology from molecular interactions. How does biology leverage its inherent out-of-equilibrium aspects to realize robust assemblies, and to what extent can we implement similar processes in laboratory settings? My research focuses especially on these questions in the context of nucleic acid hybridization, including its regulation by intramolecular secondary structure.
