I am a PhD candidate in MIT’s Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering, where I also earned my undergraduate degree in 2012. My doctoral research combines engineering with sociology and history to study reactor design and its implications for innovation and safety policy.
I have also contributed to the design and execution of undergraduate, graduate and professional courses at MIT, including a course for regulators and policymakers from countries that are considering building nuclear plants for the first time.
At MIT, I have served as Co-President of the MIT chapter of the American Nuclear Society. I have also been a Burchard scholar and a two-time recipient of the Kelly Douglas Fellowship awarded to students to pursue independent projects in the humanities.
Outside MIT, I have held internships at the International Atomic Energy Agency, the Nuclear Energy Agency, Areva and a technology policy think tank in India.
