Close Up
  • What I Do

    I am a PhD student at the University of Texas at Dallas in the lab of Dr. Taylor Ware. For my research, I am making responsive materials for biomedical applications. On a typical day, you can find me in the lab whipping up new formulations, testing mechanical properties, or trying to make my materials change shape.

  • Why Engineering?

    I chose engineering because I love solving problems! I used to love reading Whodunit books and doing puzzles, and engineering is very similar for me. You have to pay attention to all the details, then come up with a logical solution that fits all the variables. It can be very difficult sometimes, but figuring out the solution is incredibly rewarding for me.
