Brief Biographical Sketch:

I graduated from Yale in 2018 in molecular biology, and I'm now a graduate student in biology at MIT. I'm interested in biochemistry, chemical biology, and computational biology, especially on topics related to RNA and chromatin epigenetics. Outside of research, I'm also interested in graphic design, city photography, poetry, and climate science. Ask me anything!
