Previous Institution: University of Chicago
I attended the University of Chicago from 2010-2014 and received degrees in biochemistry, chemistry, and biology. I did research as an undergrad in a molecular biology lab, focusing on a project designing a genetic manipulation system for methanogenic Archaea. After graduating, I moved to New York City to be a research technician in an epigenetics and immunology lab. For two years, I worked on projects with stem cell pluripotency and with epigenetic regulators of immune responses in mice. At Columbia, I am interested in studying developmental biology, specifically epigenetic regulators of development. I am also interested in microscopy, particularly live imaging of biological processes.
Outside of the lab I like to bake, read, play board games, and hang out with my two cats.
