Career and Academic Interests

I am interested in genetics, biochemistry, and molecular biology. I am applying to graduate schools this semester, and eventually hoping to get my Ph.D in Molecular Biology/Biochemistry.

Favorite Aspect of Biology

  • I enjoy how biology explains how life works and all of its processes. It challenges us, as rational human beings, to take a step back and realize our place in the world.

Favorite Aspect of Computer Science

  • I appreciate that computer science allows for information to be stored, organized more efficiently and more accessible for people.

Work Experience

  • Organic Chemistry Lab Teacher's Assistant (August 2019-Present)
    • Employer: LMU Chemistry Department/Robert Senter
    • Facilitating lab and ensuring students’ safety as well as grading their lab reports and quizzes
  • Precalculus Teacher's Grader (August 2018- December 2018)
    • Employer: LMU Mathematics Department/Fereidoun Jahani
    • Responsible for grading student assignments and providing assistance to incorrect solutions

Interests and Hobbies

  • In my free time, I enjoy spending time with friends, watching the sunset, reading, and watching movies. I also enjoy to workout when I can as it contributes to my overall health.

Class Journal Entries


  • My homework partner was Jack P. Menzagopian for this week. I asked him a question about formatting and he assisted me during class.
  • I formatted my picture using the syntax found on MediaWiki Help:Images
  • I made a text bold and italicized by using the syntax found on MediaWiki User Guide/Text Formatting
  • I modified the protocol and used it to guide me shown on the Week 1 page.
  • I cited a quote from Janovy's book in one of my reflection questions.
  • Except for what is noted above, this individual journal entry was completed by me and not copied from another source.
