Born in St. Louis, Missouri, I have lived in Yarmouth, Maine for the past 12 years. Since graduating from Yarmouth High School in 2008, I have studied physics, chemistry, and computer science at MIT. I have worked as a research assistant in high energy physics at Fermilab (Chicago) and CERN (Geneva) over the past three years while studying at MIT. I have enjoyed traveling around the country and around the world over the course of these experiences. I love teaching and have worked at MIT as a teaching assistant since my sophomore year.
