I may be one of the most indecisive people you'll ever meet – I could not tell you my favorite animal, color, or food, so you can probably imagine my dread when I had to choose one area of study. When I discovered the Milstein Program, I was immediately drawn to its emphasis on interdisciplinary studies. It is the perfect opportunity for me to finally understand the world’s most pressing issues through multiple lenses and the growing significance of advancing technological innovations in solving these issues.

Technology has become more and more relevant in our lives throughout the years, and I have witnessed and investigated its immense capabilities in biotechnology and medicine. I hope that through Milstein, I'll be able to build on my interests in biology, sustainability, and the endless possibilities that technology brings in combatting the obstacles that lie ahead.

In my free time, I also enjoy baking, crocheting, hiking, and trying tons of new things.
