Why I Chose Einstein
At another New York school where I was applying, I asked the students, "Are you happy?" They said, "We’re grad students. We’re not supposed to be happy." Einstein had a very collaborative
atmosphere and everybody
seemed happy. People here were
excited to tell me about their
research and about the prospect
of teaching me.
Favority Story About My Research
I spent my
second rotation in Jon Backer’s lab

made it sound really interesting.
He put me on another project
studying a protein involved in
nutrient sensing. I ended up falling
in love with it.
