A student at University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), I study chemical engineering. After volunteering abroad in a hospital for 12 months, I became increasingly interested in the use of stem cells to synthetically engineer organs. Outside of the laboratory, I enjoy teaching, powerlifting, acting and singing.
