I am a PhD student in chemical engineering, designing nanoparticles to kill multi-drug resistant bacteria. In 2008, I took a course on nanotechnology and became immediately fascinated by the visible, tangible outcomes made possible by invisible technologies. This fascination led me to University of Florida for undergrad, where designed nanomaterials to improve solar cells. After three years of industry experience working on a large scale, my attraction to the minuscule drew me back to academia, where I research all things small. When I’m not zapping bacteria or writing about science, I am playing basketball and hiking in beautiful Boulder, Colorado.
