My background is in the mechanics of solid materials. I apply my training in solid mechanics to study biological systems, with a focus on the dynamics of collective cell motion. I work with Professor Jeffrey Fredberg, an expert in cell mechanics. In summer 2015 I will be moving to the University of Wisconsin.
