I am a 3rd year PhD student in the chemical engineering department at MIT. I completed my undergraduate degree at UC Berkeley, where I also studied in chemical engineering. My current research focuses on applying electrochemistry and material science knowledge to develop better electrochemical systems for energy storage and separation applications. I am very excited to be part of the organizational team at this year’s leadership conference, and to get actively involved in shaping the Status of Women panel discussion event. I look forward to bringing the current female leaders and graduate students at MIT together through the event, and support the professional development and personal growth of graduate women at MIT.
