Research Interests

As an undergraduate, I worked in experimental ultra-fast optical imaging through spatial frequency modulation, but a summer position at NCAR in Boulder drew me towards computational physics. I am now a member of the Betterton group, with interest in nuclear membrane models and cytoskeletal filament models.
