I started my studies at Indiana University in the fall of 2012. My research interests are in analytical chemistry with an emphasis on biological applications, which led me to the Baker Group. Here, my research involves using nanopipettes as electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) emitters.
I graduated with a B.S. in chemistry from University of Michigan. I was fortunate enough to do undergraduate research in the Meyerhoff group, working on a DNA detection assay as well as helping to synthesize nitric oxide-releasing vascular grafts.
I am originally from Battle Creek, Michigan. In my free time I enjoy reading, hiking and exploring new cuisines.
