I am a rising junior in physics at Clemson University with a concentration in biophysics and minors in math and chemistry. I would like to become a professor in the future and do research in dynamical/computational neuroscience. Outside of academics, I am a huge gamer, and have been playing first person shooters competitively since age 11.
