I am a PhD graduate student in the Interdisciplinary Program in Biological Sciences at Northwestern. My research involves engineering and synthesizing ribosomes with a novel function. Outside of lab I enjoy tennis, volleyball, cooking, reading and exploring Chicago. I love doing all of these things… Especially with my identical twin! (Who knew we would both end up attending the same graduate school!)
