Since October 2019 I have been a post-doctoral research associate with the PAL. I arrived after having completed a postdoc at the Institut Langevin  (ESPCI) in Paris, France. I performed my PhD work at Ultrasonics Laboratory, at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Canada. Before that, I obtained a BSc Honours in Physics at the University of Winnipeg in Canada.

I study Waves in Complex Media. I am especially interested in using elastic waves for characterizing soft and granular matter, and for ‘alternate approaches’ for imaging; that is,  designing experiments to reveal ‘hidden’ information about a material or system.

My current research areas include:
Acoustic characterization of rocks
  • Work in progress at PAL
Quantitative classical wave imaging
Experimental studies of 3D Anderson localization
Alternate approaches to study complex materials
