About Me

I'm a graduate student in the physics department at Boston University. I work with Gene Stanley on econophysics/network problems, particularly related to bankruptcy cascades in bank networks.

I grew up nearby in Concord, MA, but have spent time in San Francisco, New York and Providence. After college I worked as a risk analyst at a bank for a few years before returning to academia.

Also, I'm available for tutoring any undergraduate level physics course as well as high school physics and math. I'm generally not available on weekends, but any other time is fine.
