Brief Biographical Sketch:

I am a Freshmen here at Stanford University. I have a very distinct background in geology and oceanography from my years in high school. I plan on double majoring in Earth Systems and music, as well as pursue a minor in Geological and Environmental Sciences. I play the french horn in multiple Stanford ensembles such as the Symphony and Wind Ensemble, and am currently doing research on the nitrogen cycle in marine environments. Feel free to email me about anything I'm involved with here on campus or about my class as well. Contact info:
