I am a fourth year graduate student at the physics department in MIT. My PhD advisor is Jeff Gore. In the Gore Lab, I am working on cooperative behaviors and the evolution of antibiotic resistance.
I completed my undergraduate in physics at the College of Creative Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. At UCSB, I worked with Professor Paul Hansma on the Reference Point Indentation Instrument (also Active Life Scientific).
Before starting graduate school, I participated in the DOE/INFN exchange program and in the SULI program. During fall of 2008, I worked with the SLIM5 collaboration at Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare, Pisa, IT. At SULI (January-May 2009), I worked on the Picosecond Timing Project under the guidance of Ed May and Karen Byrum.
During my free time, I play guitar and drink tea… well, mostly drink tea.
