Graduate Student
Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics

I am a PhD candidate in biophysics co-advised by Andrej Košmrlj and Ned Wingreen. My research interests span statistical physics and biological physics, with a focus on bacterial chemotaxis signaling, phase separation, and active matter. Prior to joining Princeton, I obtained my bachelor's degree in physics from Peking University. There, I studied the nonequilibrium thermodynamics of flocking and the renormalization of nonequilibrium reaction networks. I also conducted research as a visiting scholar at Rice University, where I investigated fundamental energy-accuracy bounds in kinetic proofreading.
