Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hi! I'm Michele. After arriving at Columbia, I soon realized my long-standing interest in chemistry could become a lifelong pursuit of learning. I'm a chemistry major with a strong interest in materials science. I plan to pursue a PhD in chemistry after graduation and become a research scientist in either academia or industry.

Outside of class, I'm working on synthesis of novel organometallic molecules and enjoy knitting and running.
