Paul Dieterle is a graduate student in the Harvard Physics Department. Born alongside his twin brother in Albuquerque, New Mexico, he ping-ponged around several states before completing his undergraduate degree in applied physics at Caltech. While in Pasadena, he studied quantum optics in Oskar Painter's group. In Ariel Amir's group at Harvard, he turned his research program towards biophysics with a focus on diffusive cell signaling. When not in the mood to think about science, he likes to climb and read and run.
