Research


“Research is formalized curiosity.  It is poking and prying with a purpose.” ~Zora Neale Hurston

I have experience with lab-based research and computation-based research.  In Summer 2016, I completed Undergraduate Summer Research Grant Program at Texas A&M.  In Fall 2016, I joined the Hancock Lab in the Biomedical Engineering Department to study microtubule dynamics.  In Summer 2017, I interned through the Pharmacological Sciences Summer Diversity Program at the University of Washington.  I also researched within the College of Liberal Arts in Fall 2016, where I conducted archival research of Harry Shearer’s career work.  This work is in the process of being published.

I don’t like to limit myself to a particular form of research–I love to challenge myself and learn new skills to complete projects.  I’m interested in artificial organ development, pharmacodynamics, neuropharmacology, psychopharmacology, virology, oncology, immunology, toxicology, cardiology, biomedical polymers, and computational biochemistry.

Over on the liberal arts side, I’m curious about rhetorical theory, industrial organization, and ethical awareness.
