I've developed a toolbox of skills that has generalist characteristics by nature and specialist characteristics by education, and a problem-solving style that is a hybrid between the applied tactics of engineers (“let's make something happen”) and the experimental methods of basic scientists (“let's find out how this works”).

My research interests span a wide range of topics between physics and biology, including laser absorption spectroscopy, the improvements of crops through molecular cloning, and the development of biological sensing methods at the molecular level.

Given that my interests and skills are interdisciplinary, I'm most comfortable in environments with lots of interdisciplinary crosstalk and collaboration. My long term goals include acquiring a position in academia where I can both teach (through lecture and extension) and pursue research collaboratively.
