Graduating Year: 
Class of 2012

What are you up to now?

I am a senior at the University of Rochester studying Applied Mathematics. 

What is a noteworthy opportunity you have taken advantage of on your college or career path in the past year?

Last summer, I worked as a research assistant on a joint project between the University of Rochester and Cornell University. This led to me presenting the results of my research at a conference in San Francisco in December 2015.  

How has New Roots helped you get to where you want to be?

New Roots encouraged me to step up and ask questions, and to volunteer for opportunities that I might otherwise have felt unqualified for. 

What is next for you?

I will be attending the University of California Irvine to pursue a P.h.D. in Earth System Science with a focus on Climate Dynamics. 

What is your one-sentence definition of "success"?

Enjoying what you do, every day.
