Currently a sophomore at the University of Houston, I've been working in Dr. Hirschi's lab as an assistant since the beginning of July 2012. This entire experience has allowed me to cross paths with many smart and inspiring individuals, and I have been lucky enough to work alongside them. As an individual, I feel that my job has molded me into becoming a more responsible and open-minded young adult. I'm very much looking forward to the rest of my time at Dr. Hirschi's lab!

Started in Hirschi Lab: June 2012

I am a sophomore at Dartmouth College who had the pleasure of working in Dr. Hirschi's lab over the Summer of 2012. I primarily worked on gene transformation related to coagulation factor 7 SiRNA of lettuce plants. I was able to learn quite a bit and also get some further experience in various techniques of cell culture and molecular biology. I thoroughly enjoyed my time working with the Hirschi Lab and would love to work with Dr. Hirschi again in the future.

In May 2012 I graduated from University of Houston with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry & Biology Minor. I’m hoping to apply to University of Texas Graduate School for Biomedical Sciences for a Ph.D. in Cancer Biology and work in a Cancer research lab. I aspire to learn everything that I can from Dr. Hirschi. I wish to progress as a scientist improving and learning new knowledge and techniques in Molecular Cloning, yeast and mice model systems, and plant genetics.
