Neurosciencce

From
Mesa, AZ

Biography

I'm a senior studying neuorscience at BYU. I've been working in the Stark Lab for almost 2 years now. In the Stark Lab I am actively involved in several projects including the ROS project, the Lysotracker Project, and oversee the Windowing Project, in addition to a few others. Additionally, I am the resident microscopy expert in the Stark Lab and oversee most of the imaging that goes on in the lab. After graduation next year I plan to attended medical school with the eventual goal of becoming an interventional cardiologist - but who knows what I'll really do? When I'm not in the lab, I enjoy reading, watching sports, and spending time with family. I can almost always be counted on to talk about the big game from last night or to offer my opinion about the latest trade rumor. If BYU sports are involved, I'll know what you're talking about.
