I grow single-celled slime molds to develop more resilient cities and I study microscopic sea creatures to design zero-energy buildings.

The related, published research that I’ve led has been featured by 100+ media outlets, scientific journals, and engineering toolkits worldwide (e.g., Nature, Bloomberg, Fast Company), while earning me more than a dozen awards in renewable energy and sustainability.

I’ve been invited to speak about my work on a range of podcasts and radio shows (e.g., CBCLearning from Nature), been commissioned to write about the research by international magazines (e.g., Architektur Aktuell), and have mentored over a dozen students on spinoff trajectories (from undergraduate design projects to award-winning global sustainability proposals).
 

I'm currently a PhD Candidate in Joanna Aizenberg's Biomineralization and Biomimetics Lab at Harvard University developing what I believe to be the first platform capable of universally manipulating sunlight within buildings.
