Biography

I received my bachelor's degree in Engineering Physics from the Colorado School of Mines, where I worked with Lincoln Carr on problems related to the quantum behavior of ultracold atoms. After a brief hiatus volunteering overseas, I moved to the University of California, Santa Barbara, to pursue my doctorate in physics. I joined the Complex Systems Group, headed by Jean Carlson, where I worked on a variety of topics in statistical physics related to granular materials, biophysics, and neuroscience.  After my PhD, I moved to the University of Pennsylvania to work with Vijay Balasubramanian.  During my postdoc, I split my time between Philadelphia and France, working between the Physics of Living Matter Group at UPenn and the Laboratoire de Physique Theorique at Ecole Normale Superieure.
