• Filtering strategies for gels

    Selective Permeability in Gels

    Is it possible for a particle to diffuse through a gel faster when it binds to the gel than when it doesn't?

  • active braiding

    Active Braiding

    Self-propelled colloids can be controlled to successfully braid microscopic filaments into topological structures

  • anticrystal

    The Anticrystal

    Mechanical properties of solids can be thought of as existing on a spectrum between perfectly ordered and perfectly disordered

  • active clusters

    Collections of Active Swimmers

    Local interactions between active particles can lead to enhanced diffusion and a variety of swarming behaviors

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) at Harvard University, working with Michael Brenner. I received my Ph.D. in Physics at the University of Pennsylvania, studying with Andrea Liu and Sid Nagel. My general research interests focus on the theoretical aspects of soft condensed matter, which encompasses a wide variety of topics ranging from materials engineering to biophysics.
