I graduated from Princeton University with a bachelor's degree in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and a minor in bioengineering, and got my master's in Business and Government Policy from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. I have worked as a medical device R&D engineer, a writer, a Mars robotics engineer at NASA, a dating company founder, and a leadership instructor at Harvard. I'm currently a Mission Integration Engineer at SpaceX where I manage the integration of NASA satellites onto our rockets, and moonlight as the co-host of our live launch webcasts. In my spare time I write (true) stories, give talks about the power of STEM education, and do my little part to help make the world more empathetic, joyful, and just.
