My research lies at the intersection of computational science and the physical sciences, with an emphasis on machine learning for materials, physics, and chemistry applications. I completed my Ph.D. from the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering at Stanford University, and hold a B.A. in applied mathematics/computer science from Harvard College. Before joining UConn, I was a postdoctoral scholar in the Materials Computation and Theory group at Stanford University.


Feb 2019: Journal paper, Transferable Kinetic Monte Carlo Models with Thousands of Reactions Learned from Molecular Dynamics Simulations, accepted to The Journal of Physical Chemistry A.

Nov 2018: Book chapter in Computational Approaches for Chemistry Under Extreme Conditions in production, webpage here.

Aug 2018: Started position as Assistant Professor in the Computer Science & Engineering Department at the University of Connecticut, Storrs.
