Research Focus

My research is focused on the design and characterization of novel biomass polymers that utilize the ubiquitous chirality present in nature for enhanced material properties.

If you can’t find me in the lab, I’m usually…

exploring nature. My favorite activities include hiking and kayaking in the mountains, especially along the Blue Ridge Parkway with my dog Charlie.

Favorite place in Tallahassee?

FSU Reservation Waterfront Park & Retreat Center

What are your future plans?

I want to pursue an industry position where I contribute to the design and implementation of new polymers. However, my plans are currently flexible.
