  • B.S. in Biomedical Engineering & minor in Psychology, Rutgers University, 2022

I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering with a minor in Psychology from Rutgers University-New Brunswick. As an undergraduate researcher, I applied experimental and computational methods across a breadth of disciplines, from modeling microfluidic single-cell electroporation using finite element analysis, to development of a mouse model of arrhythmia, to microelectrode array fabrication for brain organoid research. The breadth of these experiences cultivated my passion to work at the intersection of neuroscience and engineering. 

I am excited for my time as a PhD student in the Tadross Lab. The pioneering technology, DART, developed by the lab enhances cellular and molecular specificity to unprecedented levels and would be the ideal tool to study unexplored neuronal circuits in health and disease. My primary research interest is to develop a nascent effort in the lab, to develop genetically encoded electrophysiological tools. I aim to contribute to the optimization of this new technology in both in vitro and in vivo models. 


In my free time, I like to explore coffee shops, paint, or watch my comfort shows with my friends and family. I love to travel and explore new cities by myself and have a taste of the local cuisine.
