I graduated from Oakland University in the spring of 2021 with my BS in Cellular and Molecular Biology! Along with graduating as a honor's student I received departmental honors and was recently awarded two thesis distinction awards for my Honor's College thesis. During my time at Oakland University I performed research in Dr. Gerard Madlambayan's lab working with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. I was able to give three oral presentations and write a thesis covering the work I did in Dr. Madlambayan's lab. Outside of academia, I spend most of my free time with my dog, Perry, who I rescued in Detroit over a year ago. We love to go to the dog park, going on hikes, and cuddling on my couch!
Being an incoming first year in the PIBS Cancer Biology program, I have not chosen a lab or mentor yet. My research interests are primarily in translational research, particularly in developing new treatment strategies or ways to optimize current treatment options. I want to gain experience in cell culture work and animal work.
