Hello! I am currently pursuing an MD PhD at Harvard Medical School and MIT and am in my second year of research. I graduated from Smith College where I double majored in Chemistry and Neuroscience, and where I was awarded the Beckman Scholars award. I also won the Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowship for New Americans in 2014.
Since I started mentoring younger students in my first year of college, most of my mentees have gone on to attend top colleges and graduate programs such as UC Berkeley, Stanford Medical School, and Harvard Medical School. I take my role as a mentor seriously and am proud of the success my mentees have enjoyed over the years.
Outside of science and medicine, I enjoy spending time with my wonderful fiancée, my rat terrier, and my mentees. I also have a passion for teaching, cooking, and dancing.
