Brief biography

I currently serve as the Program Coordinator for the McNair Scholars and First Year Research Exposure programs, as well as a Co-Advisor for the Hmong Organization Promoting Education.

I'm always eager to talk to students about current successes and challenges, and plans for the future. I am especially interested in engaging with students who have an interest in social justice research, education, and activism.
