I was lucky enough to grow up with two teachers as parents, who enjoyed traveling, living, and teaching in different countries. Before receiving my B.A. in Physics from Carleton College in Minnesota, I spent five years living in Saudi Arabia, five years in Michigan, two years in Taiwan, and six years in Singapore, where I graduated high school.

I am currently at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor pursuing my Ph.D. in Physics -- specifically, Observational Cosmology. During my time as an undergrad, I was very involved in the Physics Department as a Lab Assistant, Tutor, and Grader for various college-level Physics classes. I have continued tutoring as a graduate student in the UM Physics Help Room, and have also been involved in coaching Ann Arbor Science Olympiad teams.

I love learning about science and math, and teaching allows me to learn material in different ways and deepen my own understanding. I also know how difficult math and science courses can be, and I strive to make these subjects more accessible by connecting with students, providing clear explanations and real-world examples, and supporting students as they face new challenges.
