I am from Cambridge, MA and I am doing a dual degree engineering program with Mount Holyoke College and Dartmouth College. At Mount Holyoke, I studied in biomathematics, and at Dartmouth I study engineering, concentrating in bioengineering. I am interested in biochemical engineering and metabolic engineering. More specifically, I am interested in creating energy from biomass or other renewable sources. This summer has sparked my interest in other areas of bioengineering as well.
