Research Interests

I originally started out in the field of neutrino and elementary particle physics, analyzing cosmic ray noise in the Daya Bay neutrino detectors. Now I'm captivated by how very small machines act together to produce large scale and interesting phenomena. My current research involves building software and models for cytoskeletal active matter networks in an attempt to better predict how changing certain components modifies the behaviour of the larger system.
