Born and raised in New York City, I graduated from New York University with a B.S. in Biomolecular Science and M.S. in Chemistry in 2016, where I worked in Bruce Garetz’s lab studying non-photochemical laser induced nucleation in supersaturated solutions of glycine.
The best part about scientific research is getting to immerse yourself in an entirely new area to learn as much as you can about it through hands-on experience. I’m excited to help generate an even larger indexed mutant library of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii to contribute to our understanding of photosynthetic organisms.
When I’m not in the lab, I love working out, playing board games, watching TV, and eating delicious food at New York City restaurants with friends, especially ice cream!
