Current Research

At the University of Pennsylvania, my research investigates the dynamics hierarchical and non-equilibrium soft matter. I aim to establish dynamic-property relationships to aid the design of novel systems with controllable relaxations.

Previous Research

My doctorate research focused on transport behavior through model heterogeneous materials. Specifically, I predominantly used scattering techniques – light, x-ray, and neutron – to investigate how nanoparticles move through polymer solutions and colloidal materials.
