I’m a 2009 graduate of the University of Minnesota with a BS in Genetics, Cell Biology, and Development. Right now I work at SUNY-Upstate Medical University in Dr. Francesca Pignoni’s lab. We work on fruit flies, specifically eye development. I’m starting the process of applying to graduate school and I intend to get my master’s in clinical laboratory science.
I’m very interested in science policy and I like to think of myself as a Pastafarian. (If you don’t know what that is, look it up!) I’m pretty opinionated and I love to share my opinions! But I like to hear yours too. I believe in the power of a good argument.
In college I was a four-year member of the University of Minnesota Marching Band and also a four-year member of the University of Minnesota Basketball Band. I adore college basketball, and believe with all my heart it’s the only reason March is a good month.
