In my time as a researcher, my interests have predominantly focused on nanoscale systems and using spectroscopic methods to study them. After a brief undergraduate research experience working with gold nanoparticle systems and fluorescence methods, I decided to pursue my Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry at Clemson. There, I studied energy transport in fluorescent conjugated polymer organic semiconductor systems via timing spectroscopy using ultrafast lasers. My interest in the Dyer Group is focused on utilizing my expertise with ultrafast lasers and transient spectroscopy toward the study of ultrafast heat transport in enzyme systems, namely catalase.
Outside of the laboratory, I enjoy cooking, board games, going to concerts, traveling, music composition, and martial arts.
