Year at UW: Second

Hometown: Redmond, Washington

About me: Hi, I'm a sophomore majoring in biochemistry and considering a double major with neurobiology or biology. I'm from Redmond High School (on the Eastside) and enjoy martial arts, hiking, and bouldering. I'm currently part of the Ginger Lab, in the UW Chemistry Department, and previously researched at the Kaeberlein Lab, in UW Pathology. UW Honors classes have been some of the most interesting classes and I would love to talk about them or about UW in general!
