I am a PhD student in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Michigan State University. In 2019, I graduated from the University of California, Santa Cruz with a BS in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. As an undergraduate, I joined an immunology lab where I studied the negative selection of autoreactive thymocytes during development. My current research in Dr. Moore’s lab is focused on the regulation of microRNA-10b in glioblastoma through disease progression and treatment. Some of my interests outside of the lab include hiking and cooking.
