I am a fellow of the James S. McDonnell Foundation working at The Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University. I study problems in nonequilibrium statistical physics, optimization, and the intersection of these two topics. Generally, I apply these techniques to problems in biophysics and physical chemistry.

I did my Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkeley where I was advised by Phillip Geissler and Gavin Crooks.
