I am a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at McGill University working with Eliot Fried. I obtained my Ph.D. in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University under Walter Noll.

I am interested in studying the mathematical foundations of physics, particularly mechanics. By this I mean I aim to use mathematics to formulate and explore the basic concepts of physics. Most of my projects involve an interplay between mechanics and geometry. I am also interested in seeing how the tools of these two subjects can be applied to biological structures.

My interests include
