I am currently studying Biomedical Engineering as an undergraduate at Washington University in St. Louis. I am so excited to be working with Ph.D. student Fan Li and the B.I.O.N.I.C. Lab during the 2021 summer studying microglia in order to characterize their response to neural implants. This will help to better understand the foreign body response to neural implants as well as to build better neural interfaces to help treat neurodegenerative diseases.

In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, playing soccer or tennis, or working out. I also love to read books and hang out with friends or my labradoodle Hershey.
