Bio


I was Born in Pasadena, California. Growing up, I lived in Switzerland, California, New York and Utah, where I graduated from West High School in Salt Lake City with an International Baccalaureate diploma. I attended Brigham Young University as an undergraduate, where I studied Chemistry. I worked in Greg Burton's Biochemistry lab, where I studies HIV pathology. After a brief hiatus for a religious mission to Glendale, California speaking Armenian, I joined the Lab of Dr. David Michealis where I studies nano particle catalysis. After Graduating from BYU in April of 2016, I went on to attend Stanford University for a Ph. D. in Organic Chemistry. Upon entering Stanford, I joined the Lab of Paul Wender where I study synthetic methods used to make PKC modifiers.
