MIT Department: Materials Science and Engineering

Status: PhD Candidate



I am a 4th year PhD Candidate in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE), where my current research focuses on new materials systems for data storage and computing and the fundamental materials properties that enable these technologies. I am originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota, and I did my undergrad in MSE at the University of Minnesota. Outside of the lab, I am a world traveler, F1 enthusiast, and a “maker.” I enjoy building new things, from furniture to new optics measurement systems.
