About Me

I am a Chemical Engineering undergraduate student at UC Berkeley interested in studying the role of aerosol and gas-phase chemistry in the atmosphere. In the past I worked under the supervision of Nga Lee Ng through the Center for Chemical Evolution REU at the Georgia Institute of Technology and studied the role of aerosols as catalytic agents in the formation of prebiotic lipids.

My current work in the Wilson group focuses on studying the diffusion mechanisms of organic gases, such as acetic and formic acid, into amorphous aerosol droplets using the Aerosol Optical Tweezers.
