I'm a graduate student in the Endy Lab at Stanford. Currently working on engineering Staphylococcus Epidermidis to treat Type 1 Diabetes; interested in research at the intersection of synthetic biology and medicine, translational research and advocating for diversity in STEM. Hobbies include genealogy, cooking, history, and true crime. Please connect with me if you are interested in talking about any of the above.
