I've joined OpenWetWare for my lab course (20.109). I'm ready for a great semester!


  • 2015 (expected), BS Biological Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
MIT, drawn with bacteria isolated from the Charles River

Research experience

  • UROP Researcher in Alan Grossman's lab studying bacterial genetics (Summer 2012-Present)
    • Researching gene expression and DNA uptake immunity in Bacillus subtilis through genetic manipulation and biochemical assays
    • Grossman Lab
  • Occasional bacterial artist (see image at right!)
