I am currently a graduate student at the Harvard John A. Paulson School for Engineering and Applied Sciences and the Harvard Institute for Applied Computational Science pursuing a PhD in Applied Mathematics with a secondary field of study in Computational Science and Engineering. As a NSF-GRFP fellow, I am working in Prof. Katia Bertoldi's group on modeling bio-inspired optimized materials and applying generative parametric machine learning algorithms to control soft robotic actuators and classify objects based on embedded sensor data. In 2015, I earned a M.Eng. in Engineering Sciences at Harvard University and worked with Prof. James R. Rice on modeling the physics of subglacial hydrology. In 2013, I graduated with a BSE in Mechanical Engineering from Case Western Reserve University with thesis titled "Design and Implementation of Wind Turbine Torque Measurement Device."
