I earned my Ph.D in Computational and Mathematical Engineering at Stanford University, where I was advised by Prof. Greg Beroza in the Dept. of Geophysics. Prior to starting my graduate studies, I worked in the Biodefense Systems group at MIT-Lincoln Laboratory. I hold a B.Sc. in Applied Mathematics from Brown University and a M.S. in Computational and Mathematical Engineering from Stanford University.
This portfolio contains information about my professional work, including my research projects, teaching experiences, and service activities.
