Brief Biographical Sketch:

I grew up in Seattle, Washington, where I participated in multiple robotics teams. Now I am majoring in aerospace engineering and minoring in Spanish and management at MIT! I have always been obsessed with pop culture (including Star Wars, Marvel, Harry Potter, Sherlock, Lord of the Rings, Overwatch, etc.), so naturally I love teaching about it too!
