Favorite Course 20 subject and why?
20.109–Laboratory Fundamentals in Biological Engineering: This class helped me to begin to understand how to effectively communicate science. Doing the experiments is one thing but knowing how to tell people about it is another feat of its own.

20.309–Instrumentation and Measurement for Biological Systems: Between building a microscope and learning more about MATLAB, I left the class feeling extremely accomplished. I even applied what we learned in class to my UROP! The instructors are super supportive and this was also the class where I got to know more of my fellow Course 20s.

What will you miss most about being an undergraduate at MIT?
I’m going to miss the people and the groups I was a part of, especially my wing in Next House (@3East), with all their quirky, nerdy shenanigans. They all helped to make MIT feel like home away from home.

What will you be next year?
I will be pursuing a PhD in Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech/Emory this fall.

Who deserves a shout-out?
Shout-out to my parents and two younger sisters, my extended family who supported me from afar and/or helped me get accustomed to Massachusetts, and the friends and faculty I’ve met during my years at MIT!
