I am currently a post-doc in the Applied Math group at SEAS, Harvard. I am interested in understanding collective animal behavior directed towards a function and mimicking it in artificial systems. I am also interested in designing smart materials that leverage geometry for predictive response. To this end I use experiments with animals, build laboratory scale physical models and develop mathematical models to gain insights into a particular phenomena.
