I was born and lived in Kingston, Jamaica for the first 12 years of my life. I moved to New York City for the next two years, the suburbs of Philly for high school, Penn State for college, and Stanford for graduate school. I received my Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Stanford in March 2009. You can see the type of research I did here. From Sept. 2009 – Sept. 2011 I was an AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellow at the Environmental Protection Agency. Since January 2012, I have worked as an engineer at a mid-sized software company in Palo Alto, CA.
