B.Sc. Biochemistry and Cellular Biology. University of California, San Diego.

Research Interests:

I earned two Associates of Science from Santa Rosa Junior College and then went on to University of California, San Diego where I earned my Bachelor’s of Science in Biochemistry and Cellular Biology. Currently, I am a first-year graduate student in the Molecules, Cells and Organisms program.

Generally, I am interested in cell fate during development. Specifically, I am interesting in uncovering the molecular mechanisms behind those decisions.
