I am the 2014-2015 Goldman Sachs fellow at Harvard and the NASA Earth & Space Science Fellow (planetary science division) at Prof. Silvera's group. Our research is devoted to understanding some of the most fundamental electronic and structural properties of the first element's fluid state. Because of hydrogen's pride of place in chemical & physical sciences as a benchmark system as well as its cosmological abundance, our research has direct implications on our understanding of astrophysical gas giants, theory of dense liquids as well as condensed matter and plasma sciences.
Before coming to Harvard, I was a visiting scientist at the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics in Munich at Prof. Immanuel Bloch group. Prior to which, I worked at Stanford on organic molecular photovoltaics at Prof. A. Salleo group. I earned my B.Sc. in Physics (Highest Distinctions) at the Univ of Illinois Urbana Champaing, where my undergraduate thesis focused on missing energy tracking systems at the CERN's LHC ATLAS experiment.
