Please briefly describe any previous laboratory experience

  • UROP in the Vander Heiden lab at Koch Institute. This summer, I worked on a project that explores the role of pyruvate kinase M2 isoform in preadipocytes in vitro using the well established 3T3-L1 cell line. I also learned to handle mice and got trained to use a confocal microscope.

Please briefly describe any previous technical communication experience you have

  • Written Communication: I've written a 15 page research paper (not published) for my senior research project in high school.
  • Oral Communication: I have given powerpoint presentations on my senior research project in high school as well as in classes such as 20.310.

Anything else you would like us to know?

I love to dance and go watch Boston Ballet performances!
