ABOUT ME

I am a research scientist in MSE at UC Berkeley. My research focuses on innovations in modeling and design approaches for creating materials and structures with superior properties. I have a keen interest in mechanics problems across length scales, from atoms and molecules to civil engineering structures. My recent research lies in scientific machine learning, in which I aim to advance AI and ML techniques to address challenges in scientific computing.
