Minor

Public Health and English

Research Interests

I’m primarily interested in bacterial genetics and genomic alterations regarding antibiotic and antimicrobial resistance and virulence factor expression. I am also interested in immune system evasion and bacterial pathogenesis! My favorite organism is Neisseria gonorrhoeae , primarily due to its ability to avoid host detection and high rates of antibiotic resistance. Fun gonorrhea fact: due to the lack of immune memory response, it is extremely hard to create a vaccine against this pathogen!

Fun Facts

I’m currently finishing up my last year of undergrad at Washington College, in Chestertown, MD! I work with the lab remotely as a lab manager, making sure everything runs smoothly and all Doodle polls are coordinated.

I currently am planning on applying for graduate programs and obtain my Ph.D. in Microbiology, all with the goals of running my own lab.
