I joined RPI in the fall of 2018 to pursue my doctoral studies in Biochemistry and Biophysics. My research is co-advised by Prof. Robert Linhardt and Prof. Chunyu Wang. My research focuses on the protein-protein and protein-glycan interactions in Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases. Before joining RPI, I received my B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls and an A.A. in liberal arts from Minneapolis Community and Technical College. In my free time, I enjoy bicycling, birdwatching, canoeing, cooking, and knitting.
