- Graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biology from University of Michigan in 2005
- Graduated with a Master of Science in Molecular/Cellular Biology from Eastern Michigan University in 2009
- Currently a third-year student in the PhD program
Two reasons ultimately led me to pursue a PhD at the Center for Molecular Medicine and Genetics: a research-focused curriculum that prioritizes the intellectual and analytical development of students as future researchers and a faculty that produces very creative and competitive biomedical research. My career goals include discovering genomic understandings of diseases and applying them towards the development of assays and treatments. I also have a passion for education, and I aspire to a career in academia.
