I lived in Dallas, Texas before moving to Massachusetts for my undergraduate degree at Brandeis University in 2017. There I earned a Bachelor of Science in Biological Physics. Though my coursework was heavily focused on physics, my research interests lead me to a virology lab where I study non-enveloped virus cell entry.
In MCO I gained an interest in stem cell biology and now study mouse digit tip regeneration in the Lehoczky lab. Beyond the bench I have a passion for mentoring and teaching and look forward to continuing that in graduate school.
Outside of the lab you can find me hiking along the beach, watching musicals, or playing board games
