Email Address:

I am a professor of Physics who came to Princeton in 2007. Before that, I studied at Columbia, Stanford, and UC Berkeley where I was a Miller Research Fellow. I teach a course in Biological Physics and direct the Integrated Science course. In addition to teaching, I co-direct the biophysics center on campus and run a biophysics laboratory in the Carl Icahn Building focusing on precision measurements in biology. My research group studies various types of biological phenomena from the motion of molecules and cells to the behaviors of animals.
