Career Path: 

I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the National Research Center for the Working Environment in Copenhagen, Denmark. I research how workers are exposed to harmful chemicals in occupational settings and seek ways to reduce such exposures. My PhD research focused on using silicone wristbands as a quantitative tool for measuring exposure to consumer product chemicals, and I continue to work on expanding the use of silicone wristbands in a variety of settings to capture personal exposures. During my MPH at UCI, I worked with California EPA in the Department of Toxic Substance Control on the implementation of their Safer Consumer Products Regulations.

Career Experience: 
Environmental Health, Epidemiology, Chemistry
Duke University
Personal Interests: 
I played tennis for UCI during my undergrad career but love watching or attempting to play any other sport that comes my way! I enjoy hiking and running and take every opportunity to travel to a place I've never been before.
Type of Students: 
I'm open to mentoring anyone who has questions and is trying to figure out what kind of options are out there to pursue.
However, I'll probably be most helpful to someone who is interested in pursuing a career in chemistry and environmental health and especially current student-athletes!
Number of Students I can Mentor: 
Joined Date: 
7 years 4 months ago
Ideal Mentoring Relationship: 
Remote correspondence would be ideal since I am not in California and most likely will not be able to attend the PSUM program events. I am open to scheduling meetings via Skype/Zoom/etc and check my email and phone frequently otherwise.
