I grow slime moulds to design cities. And I study microscopic sea creatures to construct zero-energy buildings.

The published research that I’ve led has been featured across several diverse platforms (e.g., Nature, BloombergFast CompanyH2O Radio), and earned me more than a dozen fellowships, scholarships, and awards in renewable energy and sustainability.

I'm currently a graduate student within the Functional and Adaptive Surfaces Group (Materials Science and Engineering) at the University of Toronto, and in the fall I’ll be returning as a Research Fellow to the Biomineralization and Biomimetics Lab (School of Engineering and Applied Sciences) at Harvard University.
