I am a rising junior Chemistry major in the Dual Degree Engineering Program with a concentration in Biomedical Engineering at Spelman College. My research interest includes biomaterial development and pharmaceutical engineering. I plan to pursue a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering and focus on pediatric diseases and disorders research. Outside of the classroom, I enjoy traveling, journaling, running, and exploring new things.
