Biographical Sketch: 

I completed my undergraduate education at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2016. After that I attended Stony Brook University and completed my Ph.D. under the supervision of Prof. Edward Shuryak in 2022. Outside of physics, I enjoy running and playing and collecting video games.

Research : 

My research interests broadly cover theoretical aspects of nonperturbative nuclear physics. For my Ph.D. research, I studied potential signatures of the hypothetical QCD critical point in heavy-ion collisions and constructed statistical models of topological objects in QCD as a way to explain the confinement and chiral symmetry breaking. At Yale, I am shifting to work on nuclear structure physics. I am using modern numerical techniques to study statistical properties of heavy nuclei at finite temperatures.

Ph.D. 2022, Stony Brook University
