I'm a senior in the Operations Research and Financial Engineering (ORFE) department, with certificates in Statistics/Machine Learning, Finance, Applications of Computing, and Technology & Society. I'm originally from Riverside, Connecticut. My junior spring, I studied abroad at Worcester College at the University of Oxford in Oxford, England. I focused on Economics and Maths, and also took a course in International Relations. I really enjoyed getting to immerse myself in the tutorial style of learning, and also made lots of incredible friends amongst other visiting and matriculated students - I even joined the college rowing team! During my time abroad, I also really enjoyed getting to travel - I visited over 20 cities with my friends and family and loved getting to explore different cultures and beautiful sites, and try new foods and experience amazing cities.
