I am a Ph.D. candidate in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley, working under the guidance of Professor Berend Smit. In my research, I use mathematical models, computer simulations, and machine learning to identify and design nanoporous material adsorbents to store and separate gases.


These articles provide an accessible description of my research:


My peer-reviewed scientific publications are compiled on Google Scholar.
