I am originally from Rochester, New York and attended Pittsford Mendon High School before earning my B.S. in Biophysics at the University of Michigan--Ann Arbor with a Minor in Creative Writing. As an undergrad, I worked in the Wood Lab of UofM's Biophysics Department, studying the spatiotemporal dynamics of mixed population biofilms.
Outside of the lab, I enjoy swimming, running, hiking, and pick-up basketball. I also enjoy reading and writing short stories.
