Raised in Texas, USA, I graduated with degrees in Chemical Engineering and Liberal Arts from the University of Texas and just completed a Masters in Global History at Oxford. I have worked on research engineering nanotechnology for cancer diagnostics and led an interdisciplinary coalition of engineers and physicists towards a new paradigm of preventative care. Last summer, I rode my bike from Texas to Alaska to raise awareness and money for cancer research. At the Faculty of History in Oxford, I studied large-capital engineering projects in Afghanistan and Iran during the Cold War.
I join BSG with interests in articulating technology innovation into politics and global governance strategies. I care about economic policy incentives to encourage innovation combating climate change, harnessing medical device R&D towards global deployment, and synthesizing indigenous knowledge when engineering infrastructure in the developing world.
