I studied chemistry at Pomona College, and there, I found that endless hours spent in lab are much more enjoyable when I can connect the work to tangible results and the possibility of improving life for real people.
A desire to do research that matters brought me to toxicology, and the strong program, the unique emphasis, and the very friendly, down-to-earth students, staff, and faculty brought me to UC Berkeley.
2nd year Molecular Toxicology. Steve Rappaport Lab..
Riding my bike (especially uphill), skiing, snowboarding, the great Outdoors, cooking and eating, pottery, and good coffee spots.
Broadly, I am interested in environmental toxicology as it relates to human health.
