(Rose Lab) I consider myself a relative newcomer to research and academia, having until several months ago been pursuing pharmacy as a career. Leaving pharmacy to work with Dr. Rose has so far been one of the greatest decisions I have ever made in my life, as I find the work extremely satisfying and enriching. I now fully intend to continue my education to study reproductive and developmental endocrinology. Besides my research, my main interests are playing tennis and eating good food.
