I was born and raised in the Bay Area, and graduated from UC Berkeley for undergrad. At Berkeley, I worked in the Botchan lab, where I studied DNA replication initiation through in vitro protein biochemistry and figured out that scientific research is the career for me. I am currently uncertain about my future research plans, but I am excited to explore and find my field during my graduate studies.
Outside the lab, I love traveling and reading. I support trains and public transport and may often complain about BART.
