I am in the process of completing a Bachelor's of Science in genetics with minors in statistics and biotechnology. I attend North Carolina State University in Raleigh, North Carolina, and my anticipated graduation date is May 2018.

Career Goals

Complex problems intrigue me, and I enjoy helping others; with my current path, I hope to combine both of those. I plan to pursue a Ph.D. in genomics with the intention of conducting translational research that contributes to the finding of better treatments for cancer. I believe our current inability to cure cancer is due largely to the lack of knowledge and understanding of the genome. Therefore, I strive to perform research that becomes the backbone for new cancer treatments.
