I’m a native Utahan who is slightly confused as to the lack of mountains in Texas. While a runner of several years, I’ve been branching into the triathlon territory and have completed an Ironman. If you see me running around Rice, feel free to blast “Eye of the Tiger” for encouragement! When not involved in ridiculous amounts endurance exercise for unfathomable reasons, I like to read, write, teach, and engineer methionyl tRNA synthetase for metabolic protein labeling. If you have any questions about the GSA, getting involved at Rice, the Center of Teaching Excellence at Rice, or running/triathlons/staying active in grad school, feel free to email me. If I don’t know the answer, I can find someone who does!
