Hello! My name is Tali Khain.
I am currently a fifth-year graduate student in the Department of Physics at the University of Chicago, where I am pursuing soft matter and fluids research. As a member of Professor Vincenzo Vitelli‘s group, I study the behavior of fluids with odd viscosity. In addition, I work in Professor Heinrich Jaeger‘s lab on understanding the motion of acoustically levitated particles.
In 2019, I graduated from the University of Michigan with a double major in physics and mathematics. During my undergraduate years, I primarily worked on the dynamics of the outer solar system and the Planet Nine hypothesis in the groups of Professors David Gerdes and Fred Adams at the University of Michigan and Professors Konstantin Batygin and Mike Brown at Caltech.
