Hi there! I am currently a Senior at North Carolina State University where I am majoring in Biological Sciences with a Public Health concentration and a Biotechnology minor. I am passionate about public health research, especially as it relates to minority health and environmental exposures. I currently work as a research assistant in the Epidemiology and Environmental Epigenetics Lab here at NC State. My work with the DDCSP involved assisting with a conservation project focused on the critically endangered Bog Turtle (Glyptemys muhlenbergii) in the summer of 2017, and working on a conservation genetics project in the Genomics & Microbiology Lab at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences in the summer of 2018.
