Summary of Research

I am studying how a cricket is formed. In collaboration with Seth Donoughe, a graduate student in OEB at Harvard, we are studying the mechanical forces responsible for the movement of nuclei in an insect embryo. We use methods in image processing, machine learning, and geometric analysis to answer questions about how nuclei move.
