Hometown:  Boston, MA

Majors: Undecided

Activities and Societies: I am from Boston, MA and attended Dana Hall School. I am interested in math, technology, cognitive science, art, and everything in between! I’m especially interested in the growth and efficiency of new technologies and how this affects the human brain. My senior year of highschool I enjoyed working on my Global Scholars capstone examining the racial bias of artificial intelligence in healthcare, designing my school’s yearbook and literary/art magazine, and exploring the effects of “busy culture” through mixed media art. Outside of academics I love to dance, draw, paint, crochet, and be outdoors!

I am so excited and grateful to be a part of the Milstein Program! I look forward to bridging all my interests together, collaborating with my peers, and hopefully making an impact in the greater Ithaca community.
