I’m a senior studying biomedical engineering, with minors in chemistry and psychology. Although I was born in Miami, Florida, I mostly grew up in Chester, New Jersey. I have worked in the Truskey lab since spring semester my sophomore year. My current lab work aims to characterize the relationship between protein and nuclei content of two-dimensional muscle cell cultures. I’m also collaborating with Megan to quantify the fiber diameter of engineered muscle bundles and to determine the effect of growth media formulation on fiber diameter.
After graduation, I hope to work in medical devices or biotech, with the possibility of attending medical school down the road. I’m looking forward to applying what I’ve learned in lab to my future career. When I’m not in class or in lab, there’s a high chance I’m at a football or basketball game with the Duke Band. I also enjoy singing with the Duke Jazz Ensemble, volunteering at the hospital, and working with grade-school students through Girls Engineering Change. In my free time, I enjoy running outside and taking naps.
