I am a first year applied physics PhD student at UC Berkeley in Professor Xiang Zhang’s Lab. Before joining XLab, I earned my BS in electrical engineering from Texas A&M University. At A&M, I mainly worked in nonlinear dynamics with professors Siu Chin and Milivoj Belic, publishing 5 theory and computation papers on breather solutions of nonlinear Schrodinger equations (NLSE). I additionally worked at the Rentzepis lab for a year and a half, mostly doing ultrafast studies, and published an experimental paper on the melting dynamics of copper thin films. My current research interests include broad topics in condensed matter physics, mainly 2D and quantum materials.
My Erdős number is 4 (through Professor M.R. Belic)
I have had McDonald’s in ~15 different countries.
