Research Interests

I'm a theory-focused graduate physicist. One of my main areas of interest is the process of emergence studied in hard condensed matter and soft matter physics. Complex assemblies of particles as a whole can behave in ways that are wholly different from how each constituent particle behaves, and this emergent behavior can only be understood in terms of the collective that has been formed.
