Education

B.S.E Polymer Science & Engineering, Minor in Biomedical Engineering, Case Western Reserve University, 2018

Research Area

My research interests align with taking advantage of polymeric materials usability to expand their versatility and solve society's problems. My current research revolves around delivering genetic material in the form of nucleic acid to cells using polymer complexes rather than traditional virus vectors.

About Me:

Where are you from?

Columbus, Ohio

What is your favorite type of electromagnetic radiation and why?

Infrared! Besides its practical use in the laboratory, IR can provide night vision and unreal astrophotography.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?

Super human speed like the Flash or the superpowers of Superman since he has pretty much every superpower possible. These superpowers would allow me to do some pretty cool things like not having to sit in rush hour traffic or being invincible.
