I am a junior group leader (SNF Ambizione fellow) in the Theoretical Biology (ETHZ) and Microbial Systems Ecology (ETHZ and Eawag) groups since 2018. I was previously an NIH NRSA postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, and before that I did my Ph.D. at Rutgers University in the Department of Physics and Astronomy and Center for Quantitative Biology (formerly the BioMaPS Institute for Quantitative Biology).
I am broadly interested in quantitative and physical biology, but my group's research primarily focuses on understanding the interplay between evolutionary processes at different biological scales of length and time in microbes. To this end we combine evolutionary biology with biophysics and systems biology, using quantitative laboratory experiments as well as mathematical and computational approaches.
Please visit my home page for more details about my research interests, teaching experience, and other activities. I am currently recruiting bachelor's and master's students for rotation or thesis projects, so please contact me if you are interested. Experimental, theoretical, and computational projects are all available.
