As a bioengineering major specializing in biosystems, I am interested in the design and fabrication of novel biomimetic biomaterials to meet needs in drug delivery, sensors, and sustainable product design. I am pursuing a PhD in material sciences where I hope to transition novel technologies from the bench to the clinic for the benefit of society. Out of the lab I enjoy writing, cooking experiments, and choir. I love to hike and explore vibrant neighborhoods.
