I work with Prof. Kranthi Mandadapu at UC Berkeley to study the dynamics of lipid bilayers in the cell. I develop theory and numerical methods to model arbitrarily curved lipid membranes.

Before Berkeley, I majored in chemical engineering at Princeton University, where I worked with Prof. Howard Stone. Between undergrad and grad school, I worked for a year in finance at SIG and for two years as a software engineer at Redfin.
