I am a rising senior majoring in Applied Mathematics. I am interested in the fundamental laws and principles governing biological systems and how they give rise to the emergence of complexity. Last year I was a member of the W&M iGEM team, performing the mathematical modeling and data analysis for the project. This year I am the team's designated student leader, working together with Joe's wetlab expertise to ensure the project's successful completion. After iGEM, I plan on applying to PhD programs in Systems and Synthetic Biology.
