Non-axisymmetric shapes of biological membranes from locally induced curvature
Arbitrary Lagrangian–Eulerian finite element method for curved and deforming surfaces
I. General theory and application to fluid interfaces
Irreversible thermodynamics of curved lipid membranes
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.
