I am a fourth-year Biochemistry and Molecular Biology major with a minor in Chemistry. I am studying at the Eberly College of Science at University Park. In the Hanna-Rose Lab, I study inborn errors of purine metabolism, a group of rare and poorly understood disorders. My independent research project focuses on understanding the mechanisms underlying the severe neurological and muscular symptoms associated with them using C. elegans as a model organism.
I can provide assistance in locating research opportunities and contacting potential mentors. I also have experience in proposal writing and the development and presentation of oral and poster presentations on scientific research. Additionally, I can share resources for finding outreach opportunities.
