Who am I

Hi everyone! Welcome to my group! This is a space for all of you to explore your curiosity, so don't be afraid to ask a question or reach out at any point.

I just graduated from MIT with my bachelor's degree in Materials Science and Engineering. Despite living in Massachusetts most of my life, I'm currently in Colorado, where I'll be starting my Ph.D. this fall. I love doing all kinds of crafts, from knitting to metal casting! I also have two cats who might make an appearance throughout the next couple weeks. I'm excited to get to know you guys!
