I recently started as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Texas Tech University! My research interests are at the interface of polymer organic chemistry, material science, and biomedical engineering. 

This is my personal website; feel free to explore it. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a conversation, please reach out! A group website is coming soon.
