Materials Science and Engineering

I grew up in Brooklyn, NY in a community very representative of the West Indian upbringing my parents received.

At an early age, the importance of doing well in school was stressed because my parents weren't given the same opportunities in the countries they came from. I was encouraged to try any and everything that sparked my interest which eventually led me to MIT. I graduated in Course 3 and I hope to pursue a career in biomaterials.
