Hi! I'm Nell. I am a fifth-year physics graduate student at UC Berkeley studying particle theory, with interests in thermal field theory, non-perturbative physics, and QCD. My advisor is Hitoshi Murayama.

I did my undergraduate at MIT and worked with Jesse Thaler in jet physics and collider phenomenology. While at MIT I had the opportunity to work with the physics department administration on their new Physics Community Values.

Outside of physics I spend most of my time being a deranged, glamour-obsessed transsexual. Favourite hobbies include reading poetry, learning dead languages, playing guitar, and watching weird movies with my wonderful partner of 6 years, Jack.
