About Me

I am a Ph.D. candidate and NDSEG Research Fellow at MIT working in the Mechanosynthesis and Non-Newtonian Fluids labs. I work at the intersection of manufacturing and fluid mechanics.

I am co-advised by Gareth McKinley and John Hart, both professors in Mechanical Engineering at MIT. During my PhD, I am studying 3D printing of electronics and composite materials using insights especially from rheology. I have also worked on re-developing tools for rheometry using optimized design and stereolithography 3D printing. During my MS degree, I developed a method of using storebought LEGO bricks to create a new modular, reconfigurable microfluidics platform.

Before that, I studied Mechanical Engineering and Math at Duke University, where I was a research assistant in the López Research Lab studying acoustic manipulation of microparticles, in the Chen Research Lab studying plant development in response to light, and a microbiology research intern at DuPont Pioneer (now known as Corteva).

On this website, you can learn more about some of my technical research projects and selected class projects. Outside of research I am involved in MIT's Communications Lab and more recently with creating virtual poster sessions and events in Gather.town.

Please reach out to me with any other questions and comments!
