I started my undergraduate education at Western Washington University, where I fell in love with chemistry thanks to awesome teachers. My passion for research and teaching led me to University of Washington in 2012 for graduate school under the supervision of Prof. Jimmy Mayer. In 2014, I moved with the Mayer lab to New Haven CT, where I learned of the magical mashed-potato bacon pizza among other things!


I moved to Boston in 2018, where I am a postdoctoral fellow in Prof. Yogi Surendranaths lab at MIT. In my free time, I enjoy staying active- which means biking, playing disc sports, and photography.
