Biography

Hello! I’m a third-year student majoring in biology and minoring in health disparities. I conduct research in the Department of Health Outcomes and Biomedical Informatics, focusing on the factors that contribute to obesity in underserved populations.

Previously, I conducted research on mutant bacteria with the aim of developing cancer therapeutics. In the future, I hope to pursue an MD/PhD degree. I joined CURBS my freshman year, and love working with the kids through Educational Outreach. We’re working on new opportunities this year, and I’m looking forward to expanding our high school initiatives.

In my free time, I love reading legal thrillers, cooking, and collecting plants
