Hello! I am a graduate student in the Molecular and Cellular Biology Program. I earned a bachelor's degree from Colby College in 2022, where I learned that I love research. I am now excited to be working on the unique biology of Archaea and how this compares to Bacteria and Eukarya! Specifically, I am looking at cytoplasmic organization in haloarchaea. I am interested in how processes like intracellular transport might occur in what seems to be a highly viscous environment in the haloarchaeal cells. I hope to provide biophysical explanations for how different processes occur in this environment.
In my spare time, I love cooking, dancing, and playing games on my Switch.
