I am a physicist interested in how more is different, mainly in physics, but also in other academic disciplines. This is to ask how the often complicated small scales effect the large scales. My current topic of research is the early universe cosmology and complexity, with a focus on the phenomenological outcomes of having complicated theories explain the early universe epochs, such as inflation and reheating. 

I am a PhD student, supervised by Prof. Andrew Jaffeand an IC President's Scholar
