I was born in West Virginia, but grew up in Reidsville, North Carolina. I loved math and science in school and knew that I wanted to do something that was hands-on when I grew up. I decided to pursue chemistry during my first year as an undergraduate at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. During my time at Carolina, I became interested in polymers and conducted research under Dr. Frank Leibfarth in Polymer synthesis and functionalization. In 2018, I graduated with my B.S. in Polymer Chemistry and decided to further my education and research skills at the nearby with the NC State Wolfpack! I decided to migrate from polymer chemistry to chemical engineering to satisfy my desire to solve problems, widen the scope of my knowledge, and become a better leader while providing a unique angle because of my polymer background.
My current research project in the Abolhasani Lab focuses on the development of novel catalytic flow reactors for continuous synthesis of fine chemicals and pharmaceuticals.
