Brief Biographical Sketch:

I majored in Human Biology at Stanford in 2018 and am now working in a neurology lab here in the Andreasson Lab! There I study how to reprogram mitochondria by investigating their metabolomic profile to prevent inflammation and autoimmune reactions in the brain. I hope to pursue a career in medicine in the near future!

W6849: Quantum Mechanics of Light and Matter: A Hands-On Approach in Splash Fall 2018 (Dec. 01 - 02, 2018)
How does a glow stick work? How about a fluorescent light bulb, an LED, or a glow-in-the-dark star? And what does this have to do with quantum mechanics? Light is all around us. It's how we see and how we communicate as well. In this walk-in activity, we explore hands-on demonstrations of everyday phenomena involving light (fluorescence, phosphorescence, chemiluminescence) that provide a glimpse into the quantum world. Plus, take home a glow stick!
