Brief Biographical Sketch:

I am a student currently studying biology, and I enjoy both science and teaching! Some experiences that I have enjoyed have included helping facilitate classroom discussions in life science as a learning assistant, and researching under the PEERS program with the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior. I hope to help students gain a love of science through Splash!
