Materials Science & Engineering BS/PhD Candidate
I am currently a 5th year in the BS/PhD program, and will be finishing my BS in Materials Science & Engineering in June, along with two minors in chemistry and business. I have been an active member of Dr. Gogotsi's Nanomaterials Lab at the Drexel Nanotechnology Institute ever since I started my academic career at Drexel in 2008. I am extremely interested in research developing nanoparticle-platform drug delivery systems. As a result, I have led two major collaborative projects: one with Thomas Jefferson University's Orthopaedic Department, and another with the Shanghai Advanced Research Institute (SARI)'s Nanomedicine and Translational Medicine Center. Outside of research, I have a strong passion for multiculturalism; therefore, I am very excited about the additional funding sources which the NSF GRFP offers for international travel. I am also very interested in teaching, and am very excited to become a TA and teach some of my own classes.
