I'm a fourth year PhD student in the EECS department at UC Berkeley, advised by Prof. Eli Yablonovitch. My main research area is computational electromagnetic optimization to improve the optical design of solar cells. I am also interested in computational imaging, and using electromagnetic optimization and the machinery of the full Maxwell's Equations to improve imaging and optical sensing systems.

Previously, I received my bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering at MIT (class of 2010), and worked in the research group of Prof. Tonio Buonassisi. I'm thankful for funding provided by the Department of Energy Office of Science Graduate Fellowship and the UC Berkeley Chancellor's Fellowship.
