Career Path: 

During my time at UCI, I worked as an undergraduate research assistant with the Esser-Kahn group on various projects in the chemical and materials science fields. My career as a medicinal chemist spanned five years, involving small molecule organic synthesis, grant writing, and drug development project management. Having developed a passion for coding, I have since transitioned into a web development career. I started out as a self-taught freelancer, then an intern before entering the e-commerce field.
