I am interested in dynamic soft systems. My current projects fall broadly under polymer flows, network percolation, and hydrogel dynamics. This fundamental research aims to inform environmental, industrial, and medical technologies. Through education and outreach, I further hope to spread awareness of environmental water resources and the prevalence of complex fluids in daily life.
