A Bit About Me

I am a current sophomore on the pre-med track. This will be my first year partaking in OHG Lab. I am excited to do microbial research, and I would like to focus my research on the host and parasitical interaction. I believe that research on that topic can support us in better understanding bacterial characteristics and affix that research into medicine.
