About Me

I am currently a graduate student at UC Berkeley studying physical chemistry, having recently completed a bachelor’s degree in chemistry and mathematics at St. Olaf College in 2018. My research interests include the study of chemical reactions occurring at the liquid-air interface, and the behavior, composition, and reactivity of atmospheric aerosols. I would like to address these interests by using a combination of surface and bulk sensitive techniques such as X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and Raman spectroscopy. In addition, the use of simulation and theoretical descriptions of interfacial dynamics will be critical in describing how observations of surface phenomena can be interpreted on both molecular and macroscopic scales.
