I am a PhD student at the Stanford Institute of Computational and Mathematical Engineering (ICME). I graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in 2015 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Pure Mathematics. My research interests lie in the applications of mathematical tools to create better models for glacier dynamics.

Personal Interests

I am a writer: currently working on a fantasy novel about children who speak a special language and hence are able to uncover deep knowledge of the universe. I also like learning new languages, cooking, long distance running, and walking in the woods.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

We are currently limited in our understanding of the magnitude and time span in which global warming will affect the melting of the Antarctic ice sheet. I create mathematical models for the multi-phase flow of ice, sediment and water and then run simulations for the Antarctic ice streams to gain a better understanding of how ice is transported off the continent.
