Global Challenge: Clean drinking water and sanitation access

My goal is to become a civil engineer working towards sustainable and equitable infrastructure.”


I am a chemical and biomolecular engineering undergraduate student at NYU Tandon with an interest in public health and sustainability. I grew up in Morristown, New Jersey, but have also lived in Maryland and Oklahoma. I have been interested in how things work since I started playing cello in elementary school and noticed how the lower notes had a slower “shake.” This interest followed me by joining physics club in high school, teaching music at a local Hebrew school, and creating an interest in learning. I have continued with these interests by becoming a General Engineering Teaching Assistant, Concrete Canoe team member, and an Emergency Medical Technician. I have been able to continue pursuing interdisciplinary knowledge on technology and health in order to expand my general and applicable knowledge of those fields. When I am not participating in school activities, I can be found playing musical instruments, spending time with friends, or walking to Dunkin’ Donuts.
