I am a physicist who studies microbiome ecology.

Since Fall 2020 I have been working with David Sivak at Simon Fraser University as a Banting and PIMS Postdoctoral Fellow. In June 2020 I recieved my PhD in physics from UC Santa Barbara working with Jean Carlson as part of the Complex Systems group. During Summer 2020 I worked as a postdoctoral researcher with Will Ludington at the Carnegie Institute for Science.

Here is my CV.

For a list of my publications, refer to my Google Scholar page.

I am interested in studying the ecological mechanisms and immunological effects of microbiome-based medical therapies, called bacteriotherapies. Towards this end, I develop and apply mathematical methods to ecological models of the microbiome that are characterized and guided by well-controlled experimental model systems.
