I am a computational biophysics PhD student, currently working on Fluctuating Finite Element Analysis. Please take a look at my website for more information about my projects and research interests. You can also get in touch with me at

Research interests

Currently, I am working on a fluctuating elastic rod model for long, thin, coiled biological structures (e.g. alpha-helices, coiled-coils). Eventually, the model will be used to uncover the dynamics of the kinetochore protein complex.
