I’m originally from Rochester, NY, but I currently attend Cornell University as a junior in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering major. My research interests are mainly in the field of materials science and engineering, such as electronic materials, lithium batteries, and photovoltaics. Outside the lab I enjoy riding my bike, playing soccer, trumpet, and piano. After finishing my undergraduate degree, I plan to apply to a PhD program in either materials science and Engineering or Chemical Engineering and then perhaps enter a professorship track.
