I am a biologist fascinated by the beauty and complexity of the microscopic world. To a large degree, cells are like tiny black boxes. We are groping in an area that has not yet been fully illuminated. I hope I can let in a thin beam of light to penetrate the box. I am doing my best.

I was born in San Diego, California. I received my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Evolutionary Biology, but shortly after I discovered my love of bacterial genetics and decided to switch fields. I moved to Indiana and did my Ph.D. with Dr. Dan Kearns to study the swarming motility of Bacillus subtilis. I joined the Wang Lab in January 2018 to study chromosome dynamics.
I am an undergraduate student studying Human Biology with a minor in Chemistry. I recently became fascinated with the world of microbiology and here I am! My current research project is focused on chromosome replication. When I’m not in the lab, I like to read, hike, and go out at night with my telescope to spot the constellations.
