I am interested in better understanding chemical exposures and risk that face communities using passive sampling.
I enjoy rock climbing, running, biking, backpacking, and really anything else that gets me outside!
I grew up in Littleton, Colorado and completed my undergraduate degree at Syracuse University in 2019 with a BS in biochemistry. My undergraduate research in organic chemistry cumulated in a thesis on Ruthenium catalysis, but I have since shifted my focus from organic synthesis to environmental chemistry. I started at Oregon State University as a Toxicology PhD Student in the Fall of 2019 in the department of Environmental and Molecular Toxicology and am working under Dr. Kim Anderson in the Food Safety and Environmental Stewardship lab.
