I currently live in Seattle, Washington. I am a doctoral candidate in the Chemistry Department at The University of Washington. My dissertation is on drug development for HIV. I enjoy outdoor activities such as kayaking, camping and snowboarding. I also enjoy wine tasting, reading novels, designing cupcakes and drawing. I am pretty laid back and I enjoy the company of others. I am not a weird scientist, like many of my colleagues :) haha. C'est moi!
