About

I am a 3rd-year PhD student in acoustics at the University of Texas at Austin and the Applied Research Laboratories. I am co-advised by Prof. Michael Haberman and Prof. Mark Hamilton. I use principles from continuum mechanics, electrodynamics, and quantum mechanics to describe the diffraction and scattering sound, as well as its coupling to different domains. Applications of my work lie in biomedical, electrical, and mechanical engineering.

As a student member of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA), I enjoy serving as a room monitor and Student Outreach for Networking and Integrating Colleagues mentor at the biannual meetings. Currently, I serve as the Biomedical Acoustics Technical Committee (BATC) Student Council Representative.

I have had a lifelong appreciation for waves—thunder, ocean dynamics, traffic jams, music, etc.—and it is a dream-come-true to get to study what underlies such phenomena at a fundamental level. I share my wonder for this wave-like world through my practice problems, notes, and outreach activities through WiSTEM and IntelliChoice.
