I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at The University of Texas at Austin, working with Dr. James Tunnell in the Department of Biomedical Engineering. I completed my PhD in biomedical engineering at UC Irvine, doing my dissertation research with Dr. Bernard Choi at the Beckman Laser Institute, and completed my undergraduate studies in applied and engineering physics and a master of engineering degree in biomedical engineering, both at Cornell University.
I first became active in ASLMS in 2011, when I received a travel grant to present my research at the ASLMS Annual Meeting. I will also add that at this particular meeting, I had the opportunity to network with and get to know my now current postdoctoral research advisor. As the newly appointed early career scientist board representative, I am excited to serve ASLMS and represent the interests of my fellow early career scientists and help them leverage the opportunities afforded by ASLMS. My outside interests include playing sports, spending time with family, and rooting for all the Chicago pro sports teams (minus the Cubs).
