Hello! I’m a third-year undergraduate and University Research Scholar majoring and researching in chemical engineering. This is my second year on the executive board and my third year in CURBS. 

Currently, I’m researching with the Sampath Group in the Department of Chemical Engineering. We use open-source tools, molecular dynamics simulations, and machine learning to perform experiments on UF’s supercomputer, HiPerGator. The goal is to use these computational techniques to predictively design soft materials for applications in cleaner energy production and public health.

My passion for research is only rivaled by how much I love student outreach and showcasing the wonderful breadth of research and research opportunities at UF, and I thank you for checking out our resources!
