I am a physics PhD student who hopes to graduate in 2021. I have had multiple projects as a graduate student, with the only common connection being computational modeling. During past projects I studied the use of hierarchical structures in x-ray detector windows, the mechanical properties of many-layer graphene, and the optical performance of plastic blood assay cartridges. I am currently part of a team developing a non-invasive wearable glucose monitor. Aside from work/school, I love to hike and camp, read, ski, and find old electronics at thrift stores.

With this blog I hope to share what I find fascinating, including research and projects from my own life, from around the web, and from the scientific literature.
