Name Pronunciation



EDUCATION:

B.S. in Materials Science and Engineering, Northwestern University (2018)


RESEARCH INTERESTS:

I use first principles calculations to characterize and understand the electronic and optical properties of semiconductors (Si, BAs, r-GeO2). In particular I am interested in understanding the role of phonon mediated quantum processes such as phonon-assisted absorption, phonon-limited mobility, and phonon-assisted Auger-Meitner recombination. In addition to using existing open-source packages, I also work on developing novel methods to calculate these properties of interest. 

I am pursuing a joint PhD in Materials Science and Engineering and Scientific Computing, with the Michigan Institute for Computational Discovery and Engineering (MICDE).
