An early career researcher in the fields of organic optoelectronics and nonlinear dynamics with a passion for teaching, research, and outreach. My graduate work developed a new class of electrically-driven photonic crystals based on organic light emitting diode (OLED) technology, with applications in solid state lighting, narrow-band spectroscopy, and non-local light-matter interactions. Currently, I am studying the phenomenon of synchronization in bistable, nonlinear oscillators using nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS). My research interests are in the fundamental behavior of resonators and resonator ensembles across the linear and nonlinear regimes.

At the University of Vermont (UVM), I participated in yearly Physics department outreach events at the ECHO Leahy Center, and led the UVM Materials Research Society (MRS) Chapter for three years. I have been a member and mentor of the MRS Student Engagement Subcommittee for two years and led the development of programming at the MRS Boston 2022 and 2023 conferences.

I am a registered patent agent (Patent Agent No. 77,213), and a named inventor on several patents covering my graduate work. I have written and prosecuted several patents as a Patent Technical Specialist at Nantero, Inc. in the fields of carbon nanotube chemistry, computer engineering, and semiconductor devices. As a freelance patent agent, I have drafted applications in the fields of medical devices and superhydrophobic coatings.
