I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in May 2023 with a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology and a minor in Kinesiology and Health Education. During undergrad, I studied cancer cell metabolism, particularly the inhibitory effects of ND-646 on fatty acid synthesis in various prostate cancer cell lines. This research experience was invaluable and solidified my interest in the broad and fascinating field of metabolism. Additionally, it led me to join the Wang Lab where I now have the exciting opportunity to study how the brain controls and regulates metabolism through various mouse models. In my free time, I love to read classics, play volleyball, and teach Zumba!
