I received my chemical engineering bachelor’s degree with honors from the University of Kansas in 2014. After graduating, I worked in the process engineering industry running dynamic state simulations. After two years of industry experience, I returned to KU to pursue my Master’s degree in Chemical Engineering. Currently I work with Professor Mark B. Shiflett on the investigation of fluorocarbons as clathrate formers for an economic alternative to water desalination. In addition, my career interests involve the design and development of alternative energy. On my free time I enjoy traveling, doing yoga, and watching movies.​
