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.

Biography
I am a senior and i'm planning on going to Med School in a year. I run the PCR project (the best project) going on in the lab with Jarom Jardine. I love learning about the human body and how we can optimize its abilities. I enjoy working out and hanging out with my best friend, Dr. Stark. I have been married for about 2 years. I also like BYU sports, watching college sports in general (mostly football, basketball, and Lacrosse), I also like playing any sport, flying drones, tech, and music. My favorite thing about the Stark lab is working with the other students in the lab, they are awesome.

Biography
I'm currently a senior in the PDBio program and I'm also earning a minor in Italian. I'll be applying for medical school this summer. I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and I'm probably the biggest Oakland A's fan you'll ever meet. Aside from biology, I enjoy music, sports, breakfast cereal, and a good game of Mario Kart. I've been in Dr. Stark's lab since Fall 2016 and it's been a great getting to learn different lab techniques and researching embryonic development.
