Why I chose ESTEEM ?

I chose to come to ESTEEM to fuse my passions for innovation, science, and strategy. As a biology and business double major in undergrad, opportunities to integrate science and business were compelling, but all too rare. ESTEEM provided the ideal arena to immerse myself in the world of science, tech, strategy, and entrepreneurship. The opportunity to immediately and directly apply the skills we learn in the classroom to our capstone projects is invaluable.

My capstone project and why I'm excited about it ?

For my capstone project, I’m working with to optimize the process of outsourcing medical research & development. is the world’s largest AI-powered marketplace for outsourced medical R&D. Their innovative platform technology streamlines the R&D procurement process by connecting scientists in less time and for less cost.
My capstone project focuses on launching a commercialization plan for's Digital Storefront supplier-facing technology. I am excited to take a lead in the development of a go-to-market strategy and the commercialization of’s Digital Storefront.

What I hope to do after ESTEEM ?

After ESTEEM, I aspire to be in a cross-functional role at the intersection of science and strategy. My drive to impact centers on the empowerment of scientific ingenuity through business strategy.

What I like to do when I'm not working ?

When I’m not working I love running, skiing (both water & snow), and traveling. Australia and New Zealand are my favorite places.
