Area of Research:
Impact of post-translational protein modifications (PTMs) on proteostasis

Personal Statement:
Throughout my educational career, I have received great mentorship and instruction not just from my professors but also from student instructors who have impacted the outcome of my education. Early in my education, I became aware these professors and student instructors possessed two qualities: 1) they were both teachers and mentors and, 2) integrated different educational methodologies to reach each student. Therefore, I strive to develop these qualities to help improve the educational system in the United States.
