I'm most recently from Eden, UT, but I grew up all over - in Mesa, AZ, Chicago, IL, and Tokyo, Japan.
What brought me here:
The exciting research and interdisciplinary options in this department are what brought me here, but I also love the incredibly diverse and open-minded environment at Berkeley! And the people I've met here have all been so wonderful, so it's just an all-around great place :)
Outside of lab I love:
I love trail running, mountain biking, snowboarding, surfing, reading all the books!, and spending time with my big family.
