2022-on | Summer Intern | Carnegie Institution for Science

2019-on | BS student in Environmental Science | University of California-Los Angeles


I am currently an undergraduate at UCLA studying Environmental Science with a minor in Conservation Biology. My research interests lie in understanding the ecological and evolutionary processes that shape species distributions, especially in the face of rapid climate change. Since my long-term goal is to pursue a career in academia, I am very excited to be an intern this summer to develop my field, laboratory, and computational skills even further. Outside of academics, I enjoy playing badminton, playing piano, reading, and identifying random organisms in nature.
