I am a theoretical physicist working as a Physics of Living Systems postdoctoral fellow in the Physics Department at MIT.  My research focus is on nonequilibrium thermodynamics in the presence of fluctuations.  In particular, I am working towards uncovering the fundamental limitations and operational principles that dictate the interplay between energy, thermodynamics and information.

Update: Starting in January 2019 I will join the Faculty of the University of Michigan with a joint appointment between Biophysics and Complex Systems.  I am currently interested in recruiting graduate students and postdocs to my group.
