Brief Biographical Sketch:

I grew up in Chicago, IL, and I came to MIT thinking I'd major in math or biology. Now I'm a 4th year undergraduate in the new biological engineering major known as course 20. I find it fascinating to learn biology, and exciting to learn engineering problem solving techniques. Ultimately, I plan to explore the rapid growth of opportunities at the intersection of engineering, medicine and life sciences.
