Brief Biographical Sketch:

I'm currently a 3rd year Bioengineering PhD student in a Materials Science and Engineering lab where we work on using biomaterials for drug delivery. I'm working on using novel materials to create improved insulin formulations for diabetes treatment. Before Stanford I went to the University of Toronto to pursue a degree in Chemical Engineering and played defence on the Women’s Varsity ice hockey team. When not in the lab I enjoy riding my bike, reading, and baking.

L6938: Ice Hockey 101 in Splash Spring 2019 (May. 04 - 05, 2019)
Have you ever tried to watch a hockey game but not known the rules? Wondered why the whistle is being blown? Why players get on an off the ice so frequently? In this class we'll go over the basic rules of the game, review types of penalties, lesser known reasons why play might be stopped, and talk about some basic strategy. We'll use a mixture of "chalk talk" and video clips to understand the game.
