Hi! I am a 3rd year Ph.D. Candidate in Chemical Engineering at Stanford University, where I am coadvised by Alex Dunn and Bill Weis. I use my training in biophysics, structural biology, and computer science to understand the relationship between protein structure and function. Currently, I study mechanosensitive cell adhesion proteins using biophysical and computational approaches, including single molecule force spectroscopy (optical tweezers) and physics-based simulations.
I recieved my bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering with a minor in Polymers & Soft Matter at MIT. I worked in Brad Olsen's lab, where I studied the physics governing protein-block copolymer self-assembly. I also worked in the Langer and Anderson labs, where I characterized protein-polymer interactions for drug delivery applications.
