Brief Biographical Sketch:

I am a senior graduate student in Biological Engineering at MIT. I study the protein interactions responsible for severe forms of malaria and my Ph.D. thesis research is focused on making new tools to study and interfere with these harmful protein interactions. Outside the lab, I enjoy sharing my excitement for science with others, being a writing coach, and racing bicycles.
