I am from Knightdale, NC and  I received my bachelor's degree from North Carolina State University in chemical & biomolecular engineering with a minor in Spanish in 2016. After that, I worked as a tech transfer associate at Avioq in RTP, NC until 2019. I learned how to transfer ELISA assays, used for screening and confirmation of antibodies for HIV, from R&D to manufacturing for FDA submission. I then started my master's degree again in 2019 at NC State in chemical & biomolecular engineering. During that time, I worked with the Velev group for 3D printing microbots that can be moved by a magnet.

Now I am excited to work on my Ph.D. project in the Abolhasani Group on the development of machine learning-guided robotic experimentation strategies to accelerate the development of specialty materials.
