Hi Forbes! My name is Tara, and I'm a third-year PhD student in Applied and Computational Mathematics studying graph theory. Before coming to Princeton, I did my undergraduate degree at Johns Hopkins University and grew up in Northern Virginia. I love hiking, kayaking, and climbing, and I'm always looking for an excuse to go outside. I also love growing, cooking, and eating vegetables, so you might find me in the Forbes Garden or in one of the kitchens. I spend my evenings playing strategic board games and drinking hand-blended tea, so if you're ever in the mood for a game or a customized cup of tea, my door is always open! I'm really excited to get to know you all and be part of the Forbes community!
