I graduated from UC Santa Cruz with a bachelor’s in Biomolecular Engineering and Bioinformatics. My undergraduate research focused on multiple synthetic biology projects that were oriented towards solving humanitarian issues including agricultural plastic waste and access to vital medicines. These projects have led me to value technology’s potential for helping humans and the environment. I plan to become a technology law attorney in order to protect and encourage innovations that may currently be limited by legislation, but have the potential for positive impact. In other words, I might be your lawyer one day. When I’m not in the library you will find me cycling in the Berkeley Hills, attempting to run over a couple miles, baking something new, or hanging out with my gray cat, Spooky.
As the Inclusive Tech affinity group leader I plan to create a welcoming environment for all students and to connect students with mentors that might bring them closer to their engineering/science aspirations, whatever those might encompass. While I have some ideas in mind, I hope to communicate with group members on the types of events and speakers that would most benefit them- feel free to help me help you!
