BS, Biomedical Engineering, University of Michigan

Since completing my bachelor’s degree in 2011, I’ve worked as a math teacher at a secondary school in Sierra Leone with the US Peace Corps and as a research technician in a neuroscience lab at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Through these experiences, I gained an interest in observational health data and quantitative techniques, which I have been exploring during my time at Vanderbilt. I’m involved with some amateur music projects and playing ultimate frisbee when weather permits.
