I'm a Postdoctoral Associate at Verily (formerly Google[x]), working on the robotic surgery team. I received my Ph.D in Electrical Engineering & Computer Science at the University of California, Berkeley, advised by Prof. Eli Yablonovitch. My graduate work centered on the optimization and thermodynamics of high efficiency photovoltaics and was supported by the Department of Energy Office of Science Graduate Fellowship and the UC Berkeley Chancellor's Fellowship. My undergraduate research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology was advised by Prof. Tonio Buonassisi and focused on imaging microdefects in multicrystalline silicon with infrared birefringence.
My research interests include applying optimization, machine learning, and simulation to optical system design, with applications in photovoltaics and bioimaging. I enjoy teaching, and recently was a summer instructor for Girls Who Code.
