Profile

I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I completed my Ph.D. in the Department of Physics at UIUC. My research is supervised by Professor Nigel Goldenfeld, and is performed in close collaboration with Professor Gene Robinson’s honeybee laboratory at UIUC.

Research Interests

Broadly speaking, I am interested in applying my analytical and computational skills, acquired during my training in physics, to a wide range of interesting quantitative problems, particularly those that involve large datasets or exciting technologies.

During my doctoral research, I worked on several data-intensive projects in collaboration with the honeybee laboratory at UIUC. For more on my research accomplishments, please check out my research page. Presently, I am studying the reciprocal relationship between a honeybee’s social network and its behavioural phenotypes as modulated in the brain.
