Education Plan

I am a junior at Portland State. My major is Environmental Engineering with a minor in Biology. In the fall I’m going to be doing research on the relationship between CO2 levels in the surrounding environment and the effect this has on a plant's ability to sequester carbon. I have a passion for interdisciplinary research and finding ties between history, science and politics. I hope to travel after I obtain my undergraduate degree (ideally doing research overseas).

Professional Focus

Wherever I work in the future, I hope that scientific advancement and sustainability are at the forefront of the organization’s values. I would love to work for a non-profit or a government agency. Above all, I want to be in a position where I am able to contribute to the scientific community and be a role model for young girls in STEM. 

Personal Interests

My free time is spent experimenting with plant-based cooking, exploring Portland’s urban hiking trails, playing video games and listening to music.
