About Me

I am an NSF graduate research fellow in the Division of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at the California Institute of Technology. As a member of the Wennberg lab, my research has two main focuses:

  1. Developing analytical instrumentation in order to study the gas-phase reactions that occur in the atmosphere, and
  2. Assessing how local and regional air quality is impacted when urban pollution mixes with local biogenic (natural) emissions.

Alongside research, I also advocate regularly for the creation of more inclusive environments in both STEM and academia. I am especially interested in discussing ways to make academic research more accessible to students and researchers with disabilities.
