Current Research

My work to date in the group has mainly employed geometric approaches for the study of nonequilibrium thermodynamics, with particular focus on optimal protocols. I am also more broadly interested in the intersection of thermodynamics and information theory with potential implications on learning processes and in the principles underpinning order and structure formation in living settings.

Bio

I did my undergrad in physics and math at Harvard where I did research on dynamical systems and elasticity in the group of Ariel Amir. When I arrived at Berkeley, I intended on focusing on condensed matter theory, though I got interested in questions in learning and non-eq stat mech, and so I joined the DeWeese group instead.

Outside of science, I enjoy running, cooking, hiking, and crosswords (I just wish I was good at any of them).
