About Me
I am a fifth year Materials Science and Engineering student in the Program for Polymers and Soft Matter (PPSM) at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. I have been involved in research since my first year at Case Western Reserve University and am currently working as a graduate research assistant for Professors Bradley Olsen and Gareth McKinley. During my undergraduate education at Case Western Reserve University, I worked as an undergraduate researcher in a variety of areas and was given the opportunity to spend a summer working for the Adolphe Merkle Institute in Fribourg, Switzerland.

Outside of research and classes, I try to keep myself busy by taking leadership roles in a variety of activities. Recently, I have served as co-president of the Polymer Graduate Student Association, Events co-chair for GW@MIT, and co-president of the Women in Materials Science. I also try to fit in runs along the Charles River and participate in intramural sports through my department.
