Outside Interests:

Outside of school and lab, I enjoy running, making experimental recipes, and taking motorcycle trips.

Research Interests

I am studying the stabilization of redox-active EuII/III-containing complexes in perfluorocarbon nano-emulsions as a tool for detecting hypoxia via MRI. More broadly, I’m interested in the application of molecular and atomic principles to investigate problems and create new interventions and technologies in medicine.
