I am currently a biology Ph.D. student at Carnegie Mellon working with Phil LeDuc in mechanical engineering and Beth Roman in zebrafish biology. I'm studying how organisms sense and respond to gravity as a fellow with the National Science Foundation.

Before CMU, I graduated from Oberlin College majoring in neuroscience and music theory and taught fencing in Manhattan.
