BioI am currently pursuing a PhD in Neuroscience with Krishna Shenoy in the Neural Prosthetics Systems lab. I am interested the neural basis of movement and motor feedback control. Towards this end, I am engaged in collaborative research employing multielectrode array recordings, optogenetic and electrical stimulation, haptic feedback devices, and high dimensional modeling of population dynamics.

BioMy research interests include computational mathematics, parallel algorithms, soft matter and stochastic calculus. During my PhD, using polymer field theory and level set methods, I developed shape optimization algorithms for predicting the phases of polymeric materials with a free surface. I recently developed parallel algorithms on distributed memory architecture for Accelerated Stokesian Dynamics (ASD) to simulate large-scale stochastic particle systems correlated through hydrodynamic interactions. I currently try to embed modern machine learning techniques to exploit the data generated by ASD simulations. I am also interested in stochastic calculus theory and applications.
