Hi! I'm a Ph.D. student studying multifunctional molecular materials under Prof. Michael Shatruk and Prof. Naresh Dalal at Florida State University. I'm also interested in data science, particularly applying deep learning to problems in materials science and chemistry.


  • JACS Cover

    Our cover art was selected for the August issue of JACS! - June 2018
  • GRC & GRS

    I will be participating in the Gordon Research Conference and Symposium for Conductivity and Magnetism in Molecular Materials 2018. Hope to see you there! - June 2018
  • ORNL Trip

    I will be visiting Oak Ridge National Lab in July to perform single-crystal neutron diffraction measurements on one of my samples. - June 2018
