Hello! As a brief introduction, I am a Junior Data Science and Math & Computer Science double-major studying in the Honors Program at Temple University. Outside of academics, I really enjoy volunteering in environmental initiatives as well as traveling. This past summer, I got the opportunity to complete a research internship at Michigan State University under the Krishnan Laboratory for Computational Genomics and Biomedical Data Science. This opportunity expanded my vision to the career paths available in Data Science in a biological setting, so I am excited to join iEcoLab and to help build a cyberinfrastructure to monitor the spread of the spotted lanternfly!
