I am currently working as a postdoctoral fellow in the Theoretical Biophysics Group at Boston University, comprised by Professors Pankaj Mehta, Kirill Korolev and Daniel Segrè, with their students and postdocs. I obtained my PhD in Physics from MIT in 2017, where I studied nonequilibrium statistical mechanics with Professor Jeremy England. Before starting my doctoral work, I obtained a Master of Studies in Philosophy of Physics from Oxford University, where I did some work on foundations of classical thermodynamics with Professor Harvey Brown. I have had the pleasure of working with a number of excellent experimentalists in the Boston area during my PhD and postdoc, including Tomas Kirchhausen (Harvard Medical School Cell Biology), Alvaro Sanchez (Yale Ecology) and Laertis Ikonomou (BU Center for Regenerative Medicine). These experiences have been foundational to my research agenda, keeping my theoretical projects firmly rooted in the actual challenges presented by the data. When I’m not doing physics, I enjoy studying philosophy, particularly metaphysics and philosophy of science. I also like to spend time contemplating the beauty of nature directly, whether hiking Mount Lafayette or strolling along the Charles River Esplanade.
