I received my B.S. in Chemical Engineering (Biochemical emphasis) from the University of Southern California in 2010, and recently received my M.S. in Chemical Engineering in May 2013. As an undergraduate, I studied optical waveguide sensors in Prof. Andrea Armani's research group and played flute in the USC Trojan Marching Band.
Currently, I am a fourth year PhD student in Prof. Andrea Armani's research group at USC. My research interests include developing and implementing novel optical materials and sensors to study biological systems. I hope to someday make these innovative technologies widely available.
Outside the lab, I enjoy cooking (especially baking), running, playing the flute, and watching USC football games.
