Biographical Sketch

Hailing from Saratoga Springs, NY, I graduated from Smith College with a BS in Engineering Science and a minor in physics in 2016. During my time at Smith I gained experience through internships at the City of Cohoes, SUNY Polytechnic Institute CNSE, and Schneider Electric. Following graduation from Smith, I joined Prof. Shadi’s group in the summer of 2016 to pursue a PhD in Nanoscale Engineering.

I am passionate about engineering education, and specifically increasing representation of minorities within engineering. Additionally, I have a strong interest in environmental ethics and the impact the semiconductor industry has on the environment. In my free time I enjoy taking ballet class, medieval languages, and strong coffee.
