Awards

Goldwater Scholar, April 2019
For my research involving the observation of odd-parity magneto-resistance in industrial magnets, I was one of two Caltech students who were nominated and subsequently won the Goldwater Scholarship.

Featured in BreakThrough Caltech, August 2018
For my research and impact on the Caltech and Pasadena community, my story was featured in Breakthrough Caltech, a magazine that features promising scholars who also are leaders in the Caltech community.

Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellow, March 2018
For my academic achievement and research with Hsieh Lab, I became one of eight MMUF fellows in Caltech.

Perpall SURF Speaking Competition Finalist, January 2018
For the clarity and conciseness of my presentation of my SURF project in Hsieh Lab, I was awarded second place in the Perpall Speaking Competition, a Caltech competition which features 550 students presenting their summer work in front of a panel of judges.
