I am a fourth year chemistry graduate student in the Van Duyne group. A Bay Area native, I graduated in 2013 from UC Berkeley with a BS in Chemistry and a minor in Earth and Planetary Sciences. As an undergraduate, I investigated land-to-ocean aqueous environmental transport, aerosol evaporation kinetics, and the air-water interface. I am currently working on single-molecule surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy. In my spare time, I can be found traveling, savoring local cuisines, or honing my skills in the kitchen.
