Data aesthete at heart, I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Davidson School of Chemical Engineering at Purdue University, advised by Jeffrey P. Greeley. Understanding molecular-level behavior of the catalyst through data and science is at the heart of my Ph.D. research.
Besides research, I enjoy teaching and making scientific ideas accessible to the public. I have taught introductory chemistry and mathematics to middle-schoolers, and have assisted in designing modules that introduce critical thinking, logical reasoning, and coding in high-school curricula.
Outside of work, I enjoy cooking (link to some latest experiments), gaming, diving deep in arcane internet rabbit holes, reading philosophy, and going on longer-than-necessary bike rides.
