Ph.D. Candidate in Psychology, Northwestern University

I'm a Northwestern psychology Ph.D. candidate, currently investigating how and why some students move into and out of science and technology fields.

Before Northwestern, I earned my B.S. in Mathematical Physics from Harvey Mudd College and then pursued science education research through UC Berkeley's Technology Enhanced Learning in Science (TELS) Center.

I strengthened my data skills through University of Chicago’s Eric and Wendy Schmidt Data Science for Social Good Summer Fellowship where I worked on a machine learning project to improve student success in high school.

I'm a NSF Graduate Research Fellow, and my research has been covered by national and international news venues including Chicago Tribune, Nature, Psychology Today, Quartz, Science, The Guardian, and U.S. News.
