I’m a Physics PhD student in Prof. Sabrina Leslie’s research group at McGill University. My research is in nanotechnology and biophysics, and focuses on developing the Convex Lens-induced Confinement (CLiC) microscopy technology and using it to linearly extend DNA molecules for genomic analysis.

I enjoy building electronics as a hobby and recently built a low-cost scanning tunneling microscope capable of atomic resolution imaging. I’ll be posting more projects here in the future.
