Hometown: Urbana, IL.
Research Interests: I am interested in developing novel therapeutics for neurological conditions secondary to genetic disorders. My current research utilizes genetic, chemical, and biological tools to investigate the mechanism of action of small molecules which enhance differentiation oligodendrocyte precursor cells into oligodendrocytes. Before starting the program my research was mostly computational; I utilize these skills to streamline and automate certain aspects of my experiments.
About me: When Iím not in lab or class, I like to train for local distance races, cook new recipes, and explore the local parks with my classmates. Additionally, I am involved with leadership in organizations such as MSTP council, Graduate Student Senate, and MSTP Womenís Group.
Comment about the MSTP program: The CWRU MSTP is very welcoming and supportive providing extensive opportunities for mentoring and direct interaction with the MSTP leadership.
