I attended the University of Chicago for my undergrad degree. There I studied Physics with a specialization in Astrophysics. I was very involved in the student physics organizations, published several papers about gamma rays, and traveled to South America to work on experiments.

I then went to graduate school at Northwestern University, where I received my Master's Degree in Learning Sciences (which is like a degree in Education with an emphasis on public policy.) I focused mostly on better teaching practices outside the classroom, utilizing technology to teach, and getting girls interested in Math and Science.

I have an informal, friendly teaching style. I like to show students that they CAN do physics and math, even if they have a mental block that says they're "bad at it" or "just can't do it." I try to show that the subjects fun and relatable, explaining why students would want to know things and why topics are useful even if they do not pursue a carer in math or the hard sciences.

In my free time I listen to a lot of music, and I play a variety of stringed and percussive instruments.
