About me

Hello! I’m a first year PhD student in Biology in the Bansal Lab at Georgetown University. My research is focused on the feedback loop between behavior and infectious disease, including how disease-relevant behaviors (such as contact patterns, vaccination, and mask wearing) vary across space, time, individuals, and populations.

I initially joined the Bansal Lab as a Research Associate in 2021 after graduating from Bowdoin College. For my senior thesis at Bowdoin I developed a dynamic disease-behavior network model that incorporated perceived risk and social influence. I was advised by Professors Mohammad Irfan and Mary Lou Zeeman.

Outside the lab, I enjoy experimenting with new recipes and riding my bike along the Potomac.
