What are your plans after graduation?

I hope to attend graduate school for my Masters and then PhD.

Why did you get involved in research?

I got into research because I wanted to learn how research is conducted at a University and learn from others who are experienced in their field. I wanted to work in a lab and see how my classes and work intertwine with one another.

Briefly describe your favorite part about research

My favorite part about research is getting to talk and learn from graduate students/postdocs which expands on my knowledge from the class. This knowledge and skill that I learn lets me see the wide impact range of the research that I get to do. Doing synthesis allows me to conduct reactions that I learn about in class and then I get to see how those nanoparticles can allow us to study proteins which then lets us better understand the underlying mechanisms of heart
