Ph.D. Candidate

Materials Science and Engineering

"At Stanford, my research focuses on 2D material heterostructures, particularly stacked ferroelectrics.

Support from the Graduate Fellowship for STEM Diversity has given me some freedom to explore the non-intuitive nature of these materials. While the ultimate application is for quantum information sciences, I find the fundamental science behind them fascinating.

Beyond the lab, I seek to build up and benefit every community I’m in. This has broadly ranged from serving as the co-president of MRS to removing invasive plant species at the Dish. Additionally, as a student trainer at SNSF, I frequently find myself thinking outside of the box, training others to navigate the intricacies of their research.

These diverse opportunities have not only allowed me to cultivate a network of fellow scientists and friends but have also honed my research and leadership acumen. I am grateful to be here, and my hope is that my endeavors contribute positively to the welfare of my communities."
