I am a junior undergraduate at Harvard majoring in Chemical and Physical Biology. Most recently, I was a member of the Harvard International Genetically Engineered Machines (iGEM) Team under Professor Alain Viel. I have also researched black hole binaries at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) under Dr. Jeffrey McClintock. I am currently a co-president and violist in the Harvard Pops Orchestra, and a sabre fencer on the Harvard Varsity Fencing Team.
