I’m a rising senior at Carnegie Mellon University studying materials science and physics. At school, I am a resident assistant and a member of the service fraternity Alpha Phi Omega. My research interests are in electronics materials, and outside of the lab I enjoy playing music, outdoor adventures, and people. Post graduation, I intend on pursuing a PhD in materials science to better contribute to the green energy field and to become a professor.
