The Empire Strikes Back Thesis Title.jpg


Senior Thesis:

In a year-long collaboration with a faculty mentor from the Political Science department, I explored the motivations behind Russian troop deployments into Eastern Europe after the Cold War. This in-depth research culminated in a detailed 91-page thesis, which earned departmental honors, demonstrating my commitment to scholarly excellence and my proficiency in conducting comprehensive geopolitical analyses.


Honors Research Prospectus PowerPoint Presentation:

In preparation for my thesis program, I developed a research prospectus and delivered a 10-minute PowerPoint presentation to my class. This was followed by a 20-minute question-and-answer session, during which I discussed my hypothesis and engaged with my classmates' inquiries and feedback.

Climate Change

PowerPoint Presentation:

In collaboration with two classmates, we conducted a detailed analysis of the differences in emissions standards between the U.S. and the E.U. over the past five decades, focusing on regulatory inversion and divergence. Our collaborative effort resulted in a 25-minute PowerPoint presentation, followed by a 20-minute interactive Q&A session with our classmates. This experience not only showcased our team's research capabilities but also highlighted my skills in effectively communicating complex findings and engaging with an audience to defend our conclusions.


Roadmap Life's Guide PowerPoint Presentation:

I developed and delivered a PowerPoint presentation that focused on two key chapters from the book Roadmap: The Get-It-Together Guide for Figuring Out What to Do with Your life. After the presentation, I led a 20-minute question-and-answer session to engage my classmates in a discussion about the themes and concepts we explored.

A Journey Through

My Painting Portfolio:

I began painting a few years ago, and this collection showcases the results of my efforts. I often turn to painting when I'm feeling sad or depressed, as it brings me a profound sense of calm.

Research Week Showcase: Thesis Presentation
and Findings

At the UCLA Undergraduate Research & Creativity Showcase, I presented my thesis on Russian troop deployments into Eastern Europe post-Cold War. This research was conducted over a year with a Political Science faculty mentor and culminated in a 91-page thesis that earned departmental honors. My presentation highlighted the motivations behind these deployments and my ability to perform in-depth geopolitical analysis.

Emerald Evenings: A Remix of Van Gogh's Starry Night:

I was tasked with making a digital remix that would culminate into some form of art, and what I came up with was: "Emerald Evenings Van Gogh’s Violet Haze." This reinterpretation transforms the classic 'Starry Night' by swapping its blues for violet hues and the yellows for vibrant greens. Paired with Don McLean's 'Vincent,' this remix invites viewers to experience Van Gogh's masterpiece anew, merging traditional imagery with contemporary colors to foster a fresh appreciation of his artistic legacy.
