Research Interest:
I have always been interested in the field of genetics. Over the years, I have enjoyed learning to use different model organisms as a base of studying a wide range of genetic applications. Currently, I am interested in learning the effects of DNA repair outcomes when vital genes are no longer functioning.

Personal Interests:
I enjoy creating arts and crafts on my free time, as well as camping and enjoying the outdoors whenever the weather is beautiful.
