Brief Biographical Sketch:

I am a first year grad student here at NU. In undergrad I was a TA for Organic Chemistry, with the responsibility to work with groups of students on assigned problems. This helped me to see that I really enjoyed teaching and it became a motivator for me to want to be a professor one day. I am excited for the opportunity to teach again through Splash.
