I'm a biomedical engineering PhD candidate and statistics MS student at Northwestern University, where I develop and apply analytical tools to neuroimaging to better understand acute and chronic pain neurophysiology.

Before attending Northwestern, I graduated with a BS in Kinesiology from Arizona State University (ASU). It was during my undergraduate studies that I started getting involved in research; in particular, biomechanics research.

After finishing my BS, I spent a year completing pre-requisites for graduate school while splitting my time between the Hospital for Special Surgery and CUNY Lehman. At HSS, I completed work in the area of musculoskeletal modeling, and at CUNY Lehman, I carried out resistance training studies.

I carried out my MS work at Northwestern in neuromuscular biomechanics, where I investigated the relationships between ankle stiffness, modeled muscle stiffness, and shear-wave velocity in the plantar flexors.
