My Research in Technical Terms
Unstable Polymer Solution Flow in Porous Media
And in Plain English
I use polymers to aid the removal of contaminants from groundwater aquifers and the recovery of oil from reservoirs.
How I Got to Princeton
I fell in love with research during my first summer at Purdue, and explored as much as I could in five different labs. I came to Princeton because it is a great community of people who genuinely love the research process.
Interesting Fact about Me
My favorite thing to do is try to guess the physics or chemistry behind things I notice in daily life (Why to coffee grounds in an aeropress tend to sediment in a dome? Why does a cooling pie get one big crack in the center, and how do I stop it?). It's a fun way to exercise your hypothesis muscles.
