Interest:

I am an undergraduate student majoring in MCB with a plan to attend medical school after graduation (expected: May 2022). I have been a part of the Wildlife Veterinary Epidemiology Laboratory since November 2020. Being a part of this lab has taught me valuable knowledge about wildlife physiology and diseases. Additionally, I have enhanced my technical skills in tissue sample collection, data entry, and sample organization. Working with the individuals in our lab has strengthened my communication and collaboration with teams of various backgrounds to work towards a common goal. Currently, I am archiving bat samples that the lab has collected over the past 20 years. I am excited to pursue new research questions through this process and complete an independent project.
