I was a post-doctoral research associate with the PAL from 2019-2021. 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.
