Short Bio:
  • I grew up in northern Virginia, close to Washington D.C.
  • I decided to study and really came to enjoy the field of Materials Science and Engineering
  • While at UIUC, I was able to work on computational materials science research using density functional theory to study the electronic properties of materials
  • Over one summer, I had the opportunity to work at the Tokyo Institute of Technology on an experimental research project based on fabricating thin films for MRAM devices
  • I hope to combine both computational and experimental methods into my work to further study interesting materials properties
Research Experience:
I have experience working with computational materials science methods, such as density functional theory, as well as experimental work with physical vapor deposition techniques such as vacuum thermal evaporation and sputtering. I have also worked with some materials characterization techniques, such as SEM and XRD.
