Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Bachelor of Science, Physics, 2013

Steven is a PhD candidate in the Physics department at WPI in Erkan Tüzel's group. He writes coarse-grained computer simulations of the cytoskeletal network and its associated motor proteins to determine their physical properties and relate them to experimental observations. He has also written an L-systems model to study the growth patterns of the moss Physcomitrella patens and classify phenotypes via machine learning. When not working on research, he enjoys playing the piano and hiking.
