About me

I am a Physics of Living Systems Fellow in the department of Physics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. I completed my Ph.D. in the Bioinformatics Program from Boston University working with Daniel Segrè and Pankaj Mehta (BU), as well as Alvaro Sanchez (The Rowland Institute & Yale), and my M.S. in Microbial Engineering from the University of Minnesota. I use theory and computational modeling to study how the environment constrains the evolution of metabolic networks and shapes the structure of microbial communities. Here is my CV.
