I was born in Fremont, California. As a child, I moved a lot, from California to New Jersey and from New Jersey to Pennsylvania. I attended Lenape Regional High School in New Jersey and Pennsbury High School in PA. Currently, I am enrolled in Pennsylvania State University and am pursuing a BS in chemistry with a minor in business. I joined the Borguet Group during the summer of 2012 because I was interested in the STM projects that were being conducted by Dr. Li.
While in the group I looked at the dyes from Dr. Li’s research and analyzing how their conductivity can be manipulated by changing different variables. I find it amazing how molecules work together to live life everyday. If we can understand how molecules behave on the microscopic level, we can implement that knowledge to do fascinating things on the macroscopic level.
