I study mechanical engineering at University of California, San Diego. I have always been passionate about biology and plan to pursue a graduate degree in bioengineering later on. I have performed research on drug delivery in the past and currently research at my university regarding mechanical stretch and stem cell cardiomyocyte differentiation. For fun I enjoy running, reading, and finding new musicals to listen to.
