Hello everyone! My name is Rachel and I am a rising sophomore interested in Course 15 and 6-9. I was born and raised in California, and I am super excited to go to the East Coast for the first time. This past year I have been involved with a UROP project with an interdisciplinary team to learn more about the relationship between passive and actively collected data. In addition, I am involved in several clubs such as ARCTAN. Outside of school, I love to do arts and crafts, eat new foods, and spend time with my family (especially my four cats!). This fall semester, I am looking forward to finally seeing everyone I have met online in person. I am also excited to take new classes and get more research experience.
