  • Graduation Year: 2025
  • Major: Molecular Biology and Biochemistry
  • Hometown: Bridgewater, NJ
  • Career Interest: I've always been interested in anatomy and the inner workings of the human body. My major has opened my eyes to the really cool research at the cutting edge of medicine today, and I love it. I realized I don't just want to treat diseases as a physician, I want to come up with new treatments and see them successfully implemented. A career as a physician-scientist at the intersection of medicine and biomedical research is exactly where I want to be.
  • Fun Fact: When I'm not in the lab, I like to play drums and enjoy the outdoors.
  • What was your favorite class and why?:

    This is a tough one. I really enjoyed the MBB elective Chromatin and Epigenomics because the material was so closely linked to the research my lab does. If you're doing research, I would definitely recommend taking at least one class directly related to the work you do. Classes like that engage you like nothing else and it's so cool to make connections to everything you learn. If you're passionate about your work, it will be one of the most rewarding classes you can take. 

    Outside of my major, I had a great time taking Musics of the World. In lecture we discuss music traditions from all corners of the world and the homework is listening assignments. I got introduced to so much new music and some artists I still listen to now and taking it with friends was an all-around great experience.

  • What other Rutgers activities and extracurricular activities do you participate in?:

    I'm a big fan of teaching. Outside of class, I work as a Learning Assistant at the Rutgers Learning Centers, a Peer Instructor at the Aresty Research Center, and a tutor at Budding Years, Inc. When I have time, I also am part of a few clubs around campus including HOSA and HC Ally.
