About me:

I was born and raised in San Francisco. I attended San Francisco State University where I graduated with a Biology degree, emphasis in Physiology. I’ve worked with nonprofit organizations throughout my undergraduate years and after graduating from SFSU. I’m currently working with the Graduate Support Program at De Marillac Academy, located in the Tenderloin. I work closely with eight grade students while they are applying to high schools and I help facilitate graduate support workshops that are offered to students. I also decided to come back to SFSU and join the SEPAL Lab because I really admire all the work that has been contributed to transforming science education. 

Research Interest:

My current research interest is to explore Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) biology students’ experiences at SFSU. I will be conducting an interview study to compare their experiences at SFSU majoring in biology. My hope to help redefine how people think about AAPI students in science education because the experiences of the individuals within the AAPI community is not monolithic.
