Born and raised in Indiana, I completed my undergraduate education at Wabash College. I went on to pursue doctoral studies at Indiana University under the guidance of Professor David Williams. While there, my research mainly focused on the total synthesis of daphnicyclidin A. After graduating, I moved to Illinois and joined Professor Denmark’s group as a postdoctoral researcher.
