I grew up in Boulder, Colorado. Some of my favorite memories of school are where when my dad would come in to give science demonstrations to the class, ranging from topics like optics and lasers, to chemistry and making steel. Over the years my interest in STEM sharpened into a love of chemistry which I took to Colorado State University where I graduated with a B.S. in Chemical and Biological Engineering in 2016. While at CSU I was working on research in computational protein crystal packing with Dr. Christopher D. Snow and computational screening for small molecule protein inhibitors with Dr. Mark Brown. I also had an internship at OptiEnz Biosensors with Dr. Kenneth Reardon working on optical, enzyme–based biosensors for the measurement of small molecules in process flow conditions.
I am now working towards my Ph.D. in the Abolhasani Group. My current work is designing and characterizing switchable solvents for efficient separations using microfluidic platforms as high throughput screening methods. In my spare time, I like to play music, read SciFi, and cook.
