Hey there, Kirkland! I’m super excited to be back for my third year as a tutor in H-entryway! Born and raised in Orlando, I braved the Boston winters to pursue a PhD in human evolutionary biology here at Harvard. I’m studying the impacts of diet on the gut microbiome (my research makes me think a lot about food, so you’ll be seeing me in the dining hall often!). As an undergrad at Rollins College, I majored in biochemistry and anthropology, and had the chance to conduct fieldwork in Spain, Mexico, and Japan. I’d be thrilled to chat about all things science at the STEM table, and to help you find opportunities for lab experiences or travels abroad! In my free time, I love hiking/camping, yoga, and am trying to become a more consistent runner. Looking forward to an amazing year!

Hi Everybody! I’m so excited to be returning to the resident team to continue helping (of-age) Kirklanders learn to appreciate the wide world of fermented beverages. I’m a PhD candidate in Applied Physics where I study tangled things (think long hair, bird’s nests, headphones in your pocket, DNA, etc.) in the Applied Math Lab under Professor L. Mahadevan. Beyond the Beer and Whisk(e)y Seminars, you can find me during STEM office hours and as part of the CARE and Writing teams. I’m always happy to talk comic books, sci-fi and crime fiction, old movies, and vintage fashion. Finally, I look forward to working with you all to build a better, more inclusive STEM culture.
