I am currently an M.Sc. student in Physics at UBC under the supervision of Andrea Damascelli. Our group studies electronic structures of complex systems using angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES); my research specifically tries to induce superconductivity in graphene by adatom deposition.

I received my B.Sc. in Physics from the University of Toronto in 2014. During my time there, I measured magnetic properties of layered chromium systems with Stephen Julian and developed algorithms to determine atomic filling in an optical lattice with Joseph Thywissen. I also studied focused ultrasound with Kullervo Hynynen and planetary dynamos with Sabine Stanley.

When I'm not doing science, I sing with community choirs and hang out in second-hand bookstores. I'm a beginner triathlete. I like photography, rhythm games, and iced coffee.
