The Arthur Ross Greenhouse was a constant and a sanctuary during all four years of college. We watered, fertilized, squashed bad bugs, released good bugs, potted, repotted, trimmed, scrubbed, rinsed, sweated, idled, zoned out, and became friends. When I graduated, all I wanted to do was to put on my gown and goof around in there!
I’m a grad student studying Applied Mathematics at SEAS, Harvard University. My interest lies in using mathematical models and computation to explore problems and phenomena in the natural world. Together with my Ph.D. advisor, Prof. Chris Rycroft and my collaborators, we explore topics such as numerical methods for fluid-solid interaction problems, simulations of diffusion-limited dissolutions, modeling bacteria growth and pattern formation in biofilm.
When I’m not doing math or coding, I enjoy being outdoors and playing music with Tobi.
