About Me

Welcome to my page! I grew up in Brooklyn, NY, where I acquired a Dual Bachelors/Masters degree at NYU Tandon School of Engineering in 2016. I then received my Ph.D. in Chemical and Biological Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison under the supervision of Prof. Reid C. Van Lehn, where I applied molecular simulations and machine learning to engineer new chemical processes and materials. Throughout my graduate school career, I have grown passionate in developing more efficient algorithms, sharing code through useful tutorials, and communicating complex behavior in layman’s terms using interpretable schematics/visualizations. Outside of the office, I enjoy cooking/baking, hiking, and gaming. I am also interested in playing tennis, flying drones, and graphic design. I am a big believer that scientific boundaries are pushed the furthest through productive collaborations, so don’t hesitate to reach out and say hello!
