Brief Biographical Sketch:

I am a graduate student in Biomedical Engineering. My research focuses on changes that occur in blood vessels that may be associated with chronic inflammation. I have always loved all sorts of science ranging from marine biology to medical technologies!

When I am not working on science, I love to travel, bake, and bike! I am originally from Portland, Oregon, but have been on the East coast for a number of years. I completed my undergraduate degree at Brown in 2011.
