I am a student of both chemistry and computer science. I am in the second year of my Ph.D. studies at McGill University (2019-present) supervised by Prof. Dmitrii (Dima) Perepichka, and I am concurrently undergoing an internship at Mila with Prof. Yoshua Bengio and Prof. William Hamilton. I am a Vanier scholar (2021-present). I obtained my BSc (Hons) from McGill University (2016-2019) working with Prof. Perepichka, and earlier with Prof. Reinhard Hesse in geology. I have also been supervised by Dr. Jean-Michel Sellier at Mila. Before undergraduate studies, I spent my younger years in Germany and the Netherlands.

My current focus is on organic materials with strong electronic interactions: the design of molecular structures which form supramolecular assemblies that create uncharted physical properties, and the understanding thereof. In particular, I am interested in:
