About Me

I am a PhD candidate in physics at Harvard, where I am fortunate to be advised by Cengiz Pehlevan. I did my undergraduate work in physics at Yale, where I worked with Damon Clark on visual motion detection and locomotor coordination in fruit flies.

My research interests lie in some neighborhood of the intersection between theoretical neuroscience, statistical physics, and machine learning. For more information about my work, see some of my recent publications, as well as my teaching experience.


  • [September 2022] I’ve written a set of lecture notes introducing the replica method through the example of Wishart matrix eigenvalues for Harvard Applied Math 226, which are available here.

  • [September 2022] Our paper with Paul Masset on algorithms for sampling using spiking neural networks was accepted to NeurIPS 2022.

  • [June 2022] Our paper on generalization in deep linear Bayesian neural networks and random feature models was just published in PRE.

  • [May 2022] Our note on connections between neural network kernels and pattern storage capacity was just published in Neural Computation.

  • [February 2022] Our review on locomotor kinematics in mice and flies (with Ana Gonçalves, Megan Carey, and Damon Clark) was just published in Current Opinion in Neurobiology.

  • [January 2022] Our review on representational drift (with Paul Masset and Shanshan Qin) was just published in Biological Cybernetics.
