Ph.D. Student, UC Berkeley


Welcome to my [work in progress] personal website.

I am currently an applied physics Ph.D. student at UC Berkeley in Professsor Xiang Zhang's group. Previously, I studied chemistry at Cornell University and did my research with Professor Dan Luo. Attached below is a PDF version of my CV for download.

In my spare time I also like to take some landscape photography
