Short Research Description: 

Previous Institution: University of Toronto

Full Research Description: 

I received my B.Sc. in Biochemistry at the University of Toronto in 2019. My undergraduate research focused on the functional and structural characterization of novel anti-CRISPRs, proteins produced by bacteriophages that act as off-switches for the CRISPR-Cas system. Additionally, I spent my summer before graduate school designing and starting up a synthetic biology project to heterologously express plastic-degrading enzymes in yeast.

For my graduate studies, I am interested in exploring new techniques and broadening my scope of molecular and cell biology as a means of investigating neurobiology.

Outside of research, I enjoy reading and writing fiction, and picking up new crafts, from crochet to cross-stitch.
