I received my B.S. in biomedical engineering from the University of Rochester in 2017. I’m currently pursuing my PhD in the Meinig School of Biomedical Engineering at Cornell. On campus, I’m involved with the Graduate Society of Women Engineers and the Cornell Community Cancer Partnership. Outside of the lab, I enjoy rock climbing, skiing, hiking, and stand up paddle boarding.

My project seeks to understand the role of Hyaluronic Acid in breast cancer invasion. My research interests include tissue engineered cell culture model systems, cell-matrix interactions, and advanced imaging methods.
