In 2009, I graduated from the University of California, Santa Cruz with a B.S. in Chemistry. In June 2014, I obtained my PhD in Organic Chemistry from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) under the supervision of Prof. Heather Maynard. My graduate research focused on the synthesis and characterization of protein-polymer nanomaterials and the development of protein-polymer conjugation methods. In August 2014, I began postdoctoral studies at TU/e in  in the group of Prof. Bert Meijer. My research in the Meijer group focuses on the development of supramolecular biomaterials for 3-dimensional cell culture.
