I am a researcher, student, future engineer, and proud LSU Tiger. Since enrolling at Louisiana State University to study biological engineering, I have pursued research in biomedical engineering and nanotechnology under the support of the LA-STEM Research Scholars Program.
I've been blessed to have the chance to win the Goldwater Scholarship, conduct research in an international laboratory, and work at Harvard. Outside of the lab, I love to serve my community by teaching English and American citizenship courses to refugees in the Baton Rouge area. I love to travel, enjoy great food, read good books, collect vinyl records, cheer on the Tigers, and spend time with my family and friends.
At LSU, I am a member of the Honors College and a Distinguished Communicator candidate. I participate in recruiting and mentoring entering freshmen as an Honors College Advocate. I also actively mentor younger undergraduates in my research lab.
My research interests encompass the fields of tissue engineering, drug delivery, and synthetic biology. Within these fields, I am also interested in developing technologies that can be rapidly translated to the clinic.
