I graduated from New Mexico State University in 2013 with my BS in Biology. As an undergraduate I worked in a biogeochemical research lab studied leaf litter decomposition and its effects on the Carbon cycle. As part of the PREP program I am making a shift from ecological research to cancer research. In the future I would like to continue pursuing biomedical research, specifically researching targeted gene therapies and expanding their use in cancer treatments.
