I study molecular biophysics problems using simulation and theory in order to better understand how cells make decisions. I earned my Ph.D. while working with Ravi Radhakrishnan at the University of Pennsylvania. My early work focused on characterizing the proteins which control the shapes of cells while more recent work has turned towards question of biochemical regulation of the cytoskeleton. I am particularly impressed by the capacity for cells to carefully control the structure of matter in service of organizing the chemical components necessary to life. The chemical and physical basis for these questions also sits on top of a large set of epistemic ones: namely, how can scientists produce durable, accurate research? For this reason I am also deeply invested in developing habits that lead to reproducible research.
