Hometown: San Diego, California
Major: Biochemistry & Molecular Biology
I’m at Junior Biochemistry and Molecular Biology major. I do research on campus about the formation and function of lysosome related organelles using Caenorhabditis elegans as a model organism. As a tutor for both the Chemistry and Biology departments, I am an active part of the tutoring community at Lewis & Clark. In my spare time, I love to stay active. I enjoy hiking and bouldering and I’m currently training for a marathon. I also love to cook and bake for my friends and family.
Research on the biogenesis pathways of lysosome related organelles in C. elegans.
