Elegant puzzles, effective learning

I am a Ph.D. scientist developing novel educational technologies. My approach is to design creative abstractions that reduce STEM problems to their simplest form.

Academic Research

Workforce Training in Advanced Manufacturing

I am currently a postdoctoral associate at MIT developing educational software for the emerging field of integrated photonics.

Solar Fuels: Creating the 'Artificial Leaf'

After my B.S. in physics at MIT, I completed a Ph.D. in materials science at Caltech focusing on photovoltaics and artificial photosynthesis for renewable energy conversion.

Solar fuels - front cover of EES!

My PhD thesis project, a high-efficiency solar fuel device, was featured on the front cover of the high-impact journal Energy and Environmental Science.

Turning carbon dioxide into liquid fuel

As a member of the Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis (JCAP) I designed semiconductor devices that harnessed sunlight and water to create chemical fuels. My work resulted in two novel devices for solar water splitting and CO2 reduction.

Educational Game Portfolio

In my spare time I design, program, and publish educational games as a member of the Gamkedo Online Game Development Club.

GeoGami Precursor - Addicting geometry puzzle game. Flip shapes to solve classic geometry problems!

CrossPoint - Linear algebra playground.

Optiverse: Origins - Lasers, mirrors, and refraction.

Photon Drop - Waves, colors, and your brain.

I'm an Egg! - Humorously awkward roll-a-ball.
