Background: BA from the University of Richmond in Biology & Religious Studies.
Current: PhD student in the Integrated Biosciences Program, specializing in Biogeochemistry.
Research interests: I am very interested in the Origins of Life (OoL) field. I am presently working on a number of projects, including abiotic polymerization of RNA using mineral surfaces such as montmorillonite and brucite.
Outside the lab: Hanging out with my cat (his name is Percy), exploring Akron, hiking, and being outside.
