Biography

Hi! I am so happy to be serving as the Director of Membership for CURBS this year, and I cannot wait to be able to closely interact with the amazing CURBS ambassadors!

I am a fourth-year microbiology and cell sciences major with minors in health disparities in society and Chinese studies. I currently do research at the McKnight Brain Institute, where we focus on glioblastoma cancer and the role that cilia plays in the cancer.

CURBS has been an enlightening experience for me because I have been able to engage with so many people, discussing all the different facets research has to offer. I have made so many friends in this organization who are so passionate about promoting undergraduate research and improving it. This has inspired me to pursue my own goals inside and outside of research!
