Global Challenge: Sustainability

The fight against climate change, and transition to cleaner and more efficient energy sources and storage is a global one that can only be achieved with the collaboration of the world community.


Born and raised on Long Island, New York, I am a rising junior at NYU Tandon School of Engineering majoring in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. I am very passionate about solving problems and doing work that brings positive impact to the world

In Spring 2023, I studied abroad at Korea University in Seoul. It was a great opportunity to explore my culture and experience life in a foreign country, as well as meet people from all over the globe with many different cultures.

More recently, I just completed a co-op with Unilever working in R&D Process Development, where I helped with the implementation of new data acquisition technology within the pilot plant as well as new analytical testing capabilities.

Outside of school and work, I love both listening to and playing music. I play violin and have recently taken up learning the guitar. I also enjoy watching soccer and basketball as well as traveling.
