Brief description of research: I study how the protein, GON4L, is involved in B-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. I came into college only knowing I loved science, and once I got in a lab I quickly I found that research is the passion of my life.

I have also done a summer research internship at Vanderbilt. I worked for John York, studying how PAPST affects chondrotinin-4-sulfate and subsequently long bone growth.

On a personal note, you can see me in the picture with my first child. Her name is Luna, I call usually call her Luna Bear or my big baby.
