Joined CREST CAChE in Spring 2019

As an agricultural scientist, I began my graduate studies in August 2016 with the desire to help reduce global warming by fabricating sensor platforms to optimize the use of nutrient and water resources for plant growth. Currently, I am a doctoral candidate and my research focuses on understanding nutrient-toxin uptake and interaction in plant roots using novel cyber physical plant-on-a-chip devices.
