Brief Biographical Sketch:

In high school I loved being involved in both the debate team and robotics team, and started my own food chemistry club! Here, I do research on solar cells, and also work as the facilities manager of the MIT campus (photography) darkroom. In my free time I like to cook, bake, and do black and white film photography. Easy ways to get me excited: Ask me a question about materials, or start a conversation about bread.

S14039: Food Science - Cooking for Experimentalists in HSSP Summer 2020 (Jul. 11, 2020)
Ever wonder what chocolate and airplane wings have in common? What about whipped cream and styrofoam? Ice cream and solar cells? Learn about cutting-edge research and engineering through hands-on food science! Each session will be themed by a reaction or class of materials, including guided at-home food labs for the day. These include scientific concepts that students will use to build chemical intuition and understanding, which can be applied in school and in the kitchen.
