a food and sustainability enthusiast based in the Bay Area, passionate about solving the world's biggest problems.
Last Summer, I interned at ReGrained, an upcycled ingredient startup, where I helped to launch a new line of pasta, interact with social media influencers, as well as forge brand relationships for future collaborations.
As part of a hackathon, my team and I came up with the idea of Twillica: a "one for all" jacket capable of adapting to the user's comfort. Its shape-shifting ability is the result of carbon nanotubes and shape memory polymers. We got fourth place!
This Summer, I spent a month at the University of Illinois researching entomology and bioinspired design. I assisted with a project replicating cicada wings as well as ran my own study on the wing surface of fireflies.
