Brief Bio

I worked for a year at a pharmaceutical development (phase I) company in Madison, Wisconsin before deciding to attend graduate school at Virginia Tech. When I am not studying or worrying about studying, I like to play with cats and rock climb (with an emphasis on bouldering). I hope to become a permanent fixture in academia once I obtain my PhD.

Research Project Involvement

I am involved in a project that aims to demonstrate teratogenicity of municipal drinking water.
