My current aim is to advance my skills as a science reporter, with the goal of helping people understand global scientific issues.


I lived in Singapore from 2013 through 2014 and London from 2015 through 2016.

I have over 200 hours of experience as teaching assistant.

I’ve attended scientific conferences in the USA, Canada, the United Kingdom, Austria, Malaysia, Singapore, and Australia.
