About Me:

Hometown: Minneapolis, MN

When I joined the Mesce lab in Summer 2017, I worked on mapping sensory information of injured nerve cords in the medicinal leech (as part of the Multicultural Summer Research Opportinities Program (MSROP)). I was also involved in investigating the role of microglia in nerve cord recovery. In my free time, I enjoy traveling and learning about different cultures. I also enjoy photography.
