I am bi and I am an applied mathematician.//


I am a PhD candidate in Applied Mathematics at Cornell. I received my B.Sc. in Applied Mathematics at Brown University. My research is in the intersection of applied math and atmospheric sciences. I work with models of varying complexity: from energy balance models to global climate models. I am interested in explaining the underlying mechanisms of atmosphere dynamics from Earth’s El Niño to distant exoplanets. I use models to study the atmospheres of Super-Earths and Mini-Neptunes, and to look for planets that might undergo temporary Snowball states.

Apart from research, I like to hike and lift weights.
