I am currently a postdoctoral research fellow at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. My research at Berkeley Lab focuses on developing metal-supported solid oxide fuel/electrolyzer cells, which can be ultimately used in applications such as fuel cell vehicles, intermittent energy leveling, and high temperature water splitting.

During my PhD research in the Division of Materials Science & Engineering at BU, I conducted research on understanding degradation mechanisms of solid oxide fuel cells electrodes and suggesting mitigation strategies of cell degradation. I gained laboratory, communication, and leadership skills that prepared me for my career.
