I am from Belmont in the Bay Area and studied Materials Science at UC Berkeley. I am passionate about using science to fight against climate change and harnessing the power of electrochemistry for energy storage purposes. My past research has focused on this theme, ranging in topics from advanced lithium ion battery characterization to desalination with battery materials. Through teaching and outreach efforts, I hope to help others succeed in science and enable them to realize their potential to contribute positively to the field. Outside of school, I enjoy rock climbing, playing water polo, and spending time with my friends.
I use NMR spectroscopy and additional diffraction and electrochemical characterization techniques to understand ion conduction in solid electrolyte materials. This knowledge is used to develop new materials that can enable safer and more energy-dense lithium ion batteries for applications in electric vehicles, mobile electronics, and beyond.
