About Me

I'm a doctoral student under professor Elsie Sunderland with one foot in the Harvard School of Public Health and another in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. As a member of the Biogeochemistry of Global Contaminants group at Harvard (, my focus is on building statistical and mechanistic models to better understand the fate, transport, and bioaccumulation of contaminants in the environment with the ultimate goal of finding ways to mitigate human exposures.
