- What about the program has stuck with you: The REU program was the first place where I had the opportunity to design, from the beginning, my own scientific experiments. These skills have certainly stuck with me.

- What are you up to now: After completing my PhD at UC Berkeley in 2010, I was a California Council on Science and Techonology Policy Fellow for 2010-2011, and was subsequently hired by the California State Senate where I am a Consultant to the Environmental Quality Committee.
