2018: Doctorate in Chemical Engineering from the University of Houston with Drs. Jacinta C. Conrad and Ramanan Krishnamoorti
2013: Bachelors of Engineering in Chemical Engineering from the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Technology in New York, NY
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.
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.
