I am a computational materials scientist interested in using advanced simulations to understand and predict materials' properties for energy and next-generation computing technologies.
Furthermore, I continuously endeavor to improve my skills as an educator and science communicator, and it is through my enthusiasm of materials science that I hope to imbue the same passion and opportunities for science with others.
Since earning a Ph.D. in Materials from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2018, I am at the Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering in the University of Chicago, working as a postdoctoral scholar. Beginning in 2022, I will be joining as an assistant professor in the McKetta Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin.
Currently, I am working on first-principle calculations of electronic and transport properties in oxides for water splitting technologies.
