Brief bio:
I got my Ph.D. from the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Princeton University in 2014. I did my undergraduate studies at UC Berkeley, where I majored in Engineering Physics and Applied Mathematics. In engineering, I was most affiliated with the Department of Mechanical Engineering. I spent a year studying at the Ecole Polytechnique, France, where I interned at the Hydrodynamics Laboratory, LadHyX. From 2007-2009, I was a Research Assistant for the Risk Analysis section at the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, Washington, DC. Since September 2014 I have been a postdoctoral fellow with Kod*lab, part of the GRASP lab at the University of Pennsylvania.
