Hi everyone! I’m a senior Chemical Engineering major from Florida. I was the Internal VP last year, and a Co-PM of the Magnesium-Air team in 2020-21. My research interests are primarily in energy storage and battery materials. I had previously conducted Scanning-TEM research on cathode materials with the LeBeau group at MIT, and am now working with the Balsara group. I enjoy traveling, hiking, and playing all kinds of board games. Some of my favorites are Catan, Ticket to Ride, and Shogi! Feel free to reach out to me about anything!
