(Pak Lab) I am a senior pursuing a B.S. in chemistry. When not tucked away in a laboratory doing research, one might find me wandering campus, frequently climbing trees and doing handstands. In my spare time I whitewater kayak, climb up large rocks, write prose and poetry about my travels in the natural world, reads history books, plants shrubberies (and other green things), and runs around the hills of Pocatello.
