I am a Ph.D. student at University of Southern California, working on understanding and modeling how flow physics has shaped the biological and ecological functions of cilia and ciliated systems. Using analytical and computational methods, I develop mathematical models for ciliary motion in microorganisms, and analyze how ciliary interactions with the surrounding fluid dictate the performance of the microorganism in generating feeding currents and transporting nutrients and dissolved particles.
