I graduated with honors from Princeton University in 2019 with a degree in molecular biology. After graduating, I was awarded the Princeton AlumniCorp Project 55 Fellowship, a program for recent graduates interested in working in the public interest, and spent a year conducting clinical research at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. I applied to medical school during my research year and matriculated at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in summer 2020, where I am currently a first-year student. I personally took the MCAT in 2018 (composite score: 520), and I have previous experience tutoring for the MCAT and sciences.
