Research Interests: Immunology and Molecular Biochemistry, inflammatory mediators in adipose tissue and how they communicate
In May 2014, I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biochemistry with a minor in Psychology. Present research interest is to investigate the inflammatory mediators in adipose tissue and how they communicate. I aspire to one day earn a Ph.D. and conduct research with a direct focus on diabetes. Outside of academics, I enjoy: hiking, fishing, Sudoku and playing with my pet turtle Ninja.
