I am a Chemical Engineering junior at the University of Kentucky, and I am passionate about tackling the energy challenges facing Sub-Saharan Africa. My research interests include the conversion of carbon dioxide into alternative fuels and chemicals. I am also interested in the intersection of energy, technology, and policy. My hobbies include swimming, reading books, and hanging out with friends.
