2016 TEDxUConn Organizers
I am a junior chemical engineering major at UConn. I am very interested in chemistry and studying the interactions between things in our world. TED has always inspired me to reach into the world and explore new things. I am happy to be a part of TEDx UConn to extend this inspiration to others.
TED is a unique organization that translates groundbreaking research and professional expertise into a tangible talk to a global community. I’m most interested in the translating process. I seek out UConn professors who have advanced deeply into their field in order to make sense of some part of the scientific world. My ambition is to tap into these wells of knowledge and share them with the audience through this opportunity presented by TEDxUConn.
My passion is in fact the theme of this year’s event, Systems and Surroundings. How the world reacts on different time- and mass-scales is what chemical engineering teaches its students, and I hope that this conference inspires everyone to be cognizant and curious of the world. To fill my free time, I enjoy photography, playing cello, rowing, and exploring the world.
