Originally from Northern Kentucky, I graduated from the University of Richmond in 2015 with majors in Biology and Computer Science. At Princeton, I'm a part of Mike Levine's group, studying transcriptional regulation using the early Drosophila embryo as our model. To this end, I focus on imaging transcription events that arise from interactions between distal enhancers and their promoters to better understand how these interactions form and are regulated by various architectural proteins. In my free time, I'm an avid consumer of all types of media (e.g., books, music, TV).
