I work at the intersection of mathematics, physics, and computer science to further understand physical phenomena. My thesis work was aimed at understanding granular materials, which I studied by adapting and extending numerical methods from computational chemistry. More recently, I have branched out into studying chemical and mechanical systems as well. I hope to return to my thesis work and explore the applications of it beyond just granular materials. I am also interested in numerical methods and their application to physical systems more generally. My background and expertise in these areas makes me well suited to explore this fascinating interface.
I completed my undergraduate studies at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, New Jersey. There I received a Bachelor's degree in Physics as well as a Master's degree in Mathematics. I continued my studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where I received a Master's and Doctoral degrees in Physics and Astronomy under the guidance of Professor Katie Newhall.
I am currently working as a Postdoctoral Associate at the University of Maryland, College Park. At Maryland, I work with Professor Maria Cameron studying complex physical systems and developing new mathematical and computational techniques.
