I am a fourth year undergraduate student of Environmental Engineering at the University of Delaware. I have a concentration in Water Quality and Water Resources. I am interested in the great importance that water resource management plays in our society. My previous research touched on some of the emerging chemical contaminants in our water today. I hope to expand my knowledge on identifying chemical contamination in water and understanding the effect on both human and ecological health. I hope to obtain my PhD in Environmental Engineering. Some of my interests outside of academia include hiking, exploring new places, reading, and spending time with friends.
