Welcome!

I'm a physics Postdoctoral Scholar at UCLA in Christian Ratsch's group.

I've worn many hats in the past few years including:

  • NSF Graduate Research Fellow
  • Associate Editor at the Journal of Science Policy and Governance
  • President/Founder of Science Policy Group at UCI
  • Consultant at Seed Consulting Group
  • Communication Consultant at the UCI Graduate Resource Center
  • Competitive fencer

My guiding career motivation is to solve problems that make other people, and the world, better or more informed.

I am currently working on transitioning into data science, I see that as one of the optimal ways to achieve this career motivation.
