I grew up in Cleveland, OH and did my undergrad at Wash U in St. Louis, making me a proud midwesterner! At Rice, I develop additive manufacturing technologies (AKA 3D printers) to create engineered biological tissues with embedded vascular networks. I love building stuff and can be easily roped into trying to fix your _________. Within GSA, I am working hard to make graduate student community as tightly knit as possible by creating events and programs large and small (but mostly large). I am always excited to hear new ideas for how to make Rice an even better plan to be a grad student. Off campus, I enjoy biking, craft beer, podcasts, hiking and camping, and sampling all the awesome food that Houston has to offer.
