I am a rising senior at Sweet Briar College in my home state of Virginia. I am currently studying to receive both my B.S. in Engineering Science and Mathematics. My current research involves studying the thermal properties of various materials, and in previous projects I have analyzed the environmental impacts of water policies in Virginia. My goal is to obtain my PhD in Mechanical Engineering. Outside of class I love to read, lift weights, and make quilts.
