I have formed so many great friendships in this department thanks to department picnics, the Snout Out, GSFLC summer social hours, Hirschfelder banquets, and group canoe/hiking trips.


I received my bachelor’s in chemistry from Illinois Wesleyan University. My research working in Marty Zanni’s group at UW has focused on ultrafast spectroscopy of carbon nanotubes and other solar cell materials. I was also lucky to have the opportunity to work on perovskite solar cells at EPFL in Switzerland for a year during my time here.
