Research Interests:

Coming from a background in bacterial genetics during my undergraduate research at Purdue University , I am now engaged in pursing research in the Horner lab to better understand the variety of interactions between viruses and the host (specifically within the Flaviviridae family) as well as the roles and mechanisms of N6-Methyladenosine (m6A) in RNA Viruses during the course of infection.


Personal Interests:

Outside the lab I can usually be found poolside, exploring the wilderness of North Carolina, or at one of the dozens of awesome bars/breweries/restaurants in the Triangle.
