I’m Philly-born and Jersey-raised, so I’d say things like “wooder” instead of H2O even though I’m a chemistry major. During this internship, I will be working in the bio-NMR lab and analyzing interactions between small organic molecules and microRNA. I play 5 instruments including the flute and piccolo which I march in the UMass Minuteman Marching Band! When I’m not cooped up in the lab or a rehearsal, I love cycling, drawing, and photography in the meantime.
