I am an NSF Fellow, Gates Millennium Scholar, and Dell Scholar studying for my PhD in chemistry at Yale University. My current research in Mark A. Johnson’s lab is focused on three topics: 1. Characterizing the behaviors of the excess proton within flexible and rigid frameworks, 2. Capturing, isolating, and activating small molecules (CO2, N2O, CO) with FeMoco-like complexes, 3. Designing new instrumentation for systematically handling, reacting and characterizing sensitive cryogenic ions.
My undergraduate work with Stewart E. Novick at Wesleyan University involved the use of microwave spectroscopy to explore and characterize the rotational spectrum of van der Waals complexes and perfluoroalkanes. I graduated from Wesleyan University with a B.A. and high honors in chemistry.
Beyond academia, I love to travel, cook, learn something new (piano at the moment), and dabble with philosophy, technology, and poetry.
