Research Interests:
I am a second-year student at University of Nebraska at Omaha where I am majoring in Bioinformatics with a minor in Computer Science. At my home institution, I am a member of the Cooper lab focusing on reproducible application of computational analysis on biomedical data. I have worked on bulk RNA sequence analysis and have been building a workflow for 16S rRNA sequence analysis in a collaboration project between the Cooper lab and the Clayton lab. This summer at the Extavour lab, I will be studying various aspects of cell migration using CompuCell3D, a software for cell migration simulation. Outside of the lab, I enjoy trying new coffee shops.
