I'm currently a PhD student in the Quantum Nanostructures and Nanofabrication Group at MIT, located in Cambridge, MA. My research focuses on the design and fabrication of superconducting nanoelectronics.
A common theme both in art and science is form giving way to function. While my research deals specifically with how geometry affects the behavior of devices, artistically I'm interested in how color and light -- both dynamic entities-- interact to represent a stable form. I'm most drawn towards figurative work and portraits, and am inspired by the faces I encounter moving about the city every day.
