The function of freedom is to free someone else.
— Toni Morrison

For me, the allure of problem solving is in the entire process, from the initial conception based on fundamentals to the generation of new and exciting solutions.  My experiences have taught me that being an effective problem solver often requires bravery and courage to ask the tough questions leading to more productive answers. I embrace this within my research as well as the scientific community; especially when it comes to my experiences as a black female physicist.

Ultimately, I dream of being at the forefront of research with contributions to a physics community that is diverse and inclusive.  As a part of the five year combined degree program, I graduated from Brown University with two degrees: a Bachelor of Science in physics and a Bachelor of Arts in Africana Studies.  While at Brown, I received the physics department's Mildred Widgoff Award (for Excellence in Thesis Preparation), co-created a course: Race and Gender in the Scientific Community and was selected as the 2016 commencement speaker.  I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in Applied Physics at Harvard University.

I strive for solutions, freedom, analysis and peace.
