I am a third year graduate student in Kash Research lab at Case Western Reserve University. I learned about OpenWetWare from my undergrad institution used an OWW page to manage lab courses, and I've joined because I would like to centralize/organize the various experiments and projects in my grad laboratory. My PI has five students, each with individual but related projects and it would be helpful for us to have SOPs and new research information and recommended papers in one location.

Research Interests

  • ternary nitrides
  • crystal growth
  • characterization
  • computer programming
  • public outreach


I completed my undergraduate degree at Colorado College in 2012, majoring in Physics and with minors in Mathematics and Spanish. Before entering graduate school I worked as a research assistant in three different labs:

  • Prof. Lang (CC) in a Biology-Physics collaboration
  • Prof. Burns (CC) on an astrophysics project
  • Prof. Ruhl (CWRU) on a CMB Cosmology experiment


Currently no publications.
