I am from Puyallup, Washington attending BYU to receive my PhD in chemistry. For fun every morning I go to the gym and lift weights. My hobbies are reading books (time traveling books), playing board games, and coming up with new workout routines. My future plans are going back to industry as a computational chemist.

I am performing molecular dynamics simulations to study C-H activation of ethylene by transition metal complexes that results in non-statistical product ratios. Spin-crossover occurs in this project and is found by using minimum energy crossing point (MECP).
