I’m a sixth year graduate student working with Professor Charles Ahn. I went to undergrad at the University of California, Berkeley (Go Bears!) where I received my bachlor’s degree in Physics. I am now pursuing my PhD in Applied Physics where I am working on engineering new materials for technological applications including high power devices and renewable energy. Besides working in a lab, I enjoy photography, cars, swing dancing, and flying (both as a passenger and as a pilot).


Fabrication and study of novel complex oxide systems, integration of oxides with conventional semiconductors. Interests in applying materials physics to photovoltaics, battery technology and renewable energy, as well as scientific teaching.
