Who am I?

Can I conceal myself for evermore?
Pretend I'm not the man I was before?

And must my name until I die
Be no more than an alibi?

Who am I? Who am I?
I'm *Jean Valjean*

About me

Currently a senior at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, pursuing a BS in Civil Engineering,
a BS in Materials Science and Engineering and a minor in Architecture (Download CV here).
While I’ve worked on various research projects concerned with new materials and construction
paradigms in the past, I find I’m increasingly fascinated with the fundamental theory behind materials
and how better understanding of these properties and new knowledge can emerge through meso-scale
modelling and simulation.

Recently, I’ve been interested in pedagogy and the role visualization and coding can play in education.
To this end, I’ve been researching and TAing Material Science undergraduate classes and I hope
to continue until the end of my studies and contribute to this new teaching paradigm.


What am I?

Machine Learning word cloud on my Facebook profile picture on a mask of Cyprus (beautiful Mediterranean island I get to call home).
Personal Favourite: "straitjacket" - nice one Mathematica

(For the curious mind, Mathematica code used to generate:
