Summary of Activities/Interests

Nanotechnology is, at its core, the overlap between chemistry, physics, and engineering. I am fascinated by the challenge of using nano-scale phenomena to enhance and enrich life in ways never before possible. My research, starting with Broadcom Corp. through the Armani Group at USC and now the Bohn Group at Notre Dame, has given me a background in a wide range of areas including networking, programming, chemistry, and chemical and electrical engineering.

In my free time, I enjoy pursing my hobbies of archery, photography, and music. I began studying piano performance and composition at the age of 5, and continued taking classes in jazz piano and classical organ performance through the Thornton School of Music at USC.
