I recently completed my PhD in the MIT Department of Biology where I used frog embryos to model human craniofacial development. I am currently pursuing a career in science communication and am excited for this upcoming summer when I will be writing for STAT as a AAAS Mass Media Fellow. In the past, I have worked with multiple organizations at MIT including MIT News, the Biology Department, and the Convergence Idea Challenge. I particularly enjoy writing profiles about scientists that highlight their personality and explore how they find meaning in the world. In my spare time, I am usually running along the Charles river, reading novels, or napping.
