I am broadly interested in the intersection of physics and chemistry.  Currently more narrowly interested in the theoretical use of spectroscopy as a tool to elucidate more information about energy transfer in a molecular aggregate.

I currently work for Alán Aspuru-Guzik at the Harvard Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology where I am a graduate student in the Chemical Physics Program.

In undergrad, I worked for Richard J. Saykally at the University of California, Berkeley (GO BEARS!) College of Chemistry.
