Hello! I am a MSIII at the University of Vermont, though originally from Bloomington, Indiana. I graduated from IU with a Biochemistry and Microbiology BA, and am a former competitive pastry chef and tennis player. Moreover, I absolutely love ice cream.

In regards to The Palate, I am interested in how food impacts individual health and how nutrition can influence medical treatment. I am also interested in how the culture of food has changed throughout history, food scarcity/deserts, the sustainability of our food economy, and the effects of having such a prominent food industry.
