I am currently a junior at Princeton University majoring in Molecular Biology. I like working in science-related fields because they suit my personality and interest more. Coming in as a freshman, I knew I wanted to major in either chemistry or biology and I am glad that I made it happen. Joining Jonikas lab is exciting because working with green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii is very novel, and the implications of research here answer questions related to green energy and food crops. 

Outside of school work, I like to watch anime and cook. I am not a very outdoor person, but I enjoy hiking.
