Full Research Description: 

 

This spring, I graduated from Cornell University, where I majored in biology with a concentration in genetics.  During my time there, I aimed to identify sequences sufficient for function of the imprinted gene Rasgrf1 in mice.  Over a summer, at an upstate agricultural center, I worked to identify genes responsible for virus resistance in beans.  Another summer was spent at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, where I performed screens in yeast to determine genes involved in the pathway of a rare anemia called Diamond-Blackfan Anemia.  I hope to add to my background while at Columbia by gaining a better understanding of epigenetics, although I am open to expanding my experience to other areas as well.  

I love to play the flute, work out, eat chocolate, and have drawn-out debates about anything from fashion to religion.  After spending most of my life in small towns - before attending Cornell in Ithaca, I grew up in an even smaller upstate town - I am very new to the city and its culture.  I look forward to checking out as many restaurants, concerts, and museums as I can while I'm here.
