I am currently a postdoctoral research fellow at the Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute (HEMI), Johns Hopkins University (JHU). From June 2020 to July 2021 I was a postdoctoral research fellow at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). In June 2020, I received my Ph.D. in Applied Mechanics with a minor in Applied and Computational Mathematics from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech).
My research interests lie in understanding and further exploiting the non-linear behaviors of disordered (e.g., granular and glassy) materials. I pay special attentions on connecting observations on different length scales and time scales with the ultimate goal of establishing a robust framework allowing for both top-down and bottom-up applications. I combine experimental and computational tools in pursuit of such knowledge.
