(Groome Lab) I will be completing a B.S. in Medical Microbiology, a B.A. in French, and an A.S. in Chemistry. My ultimate goal is to conduct biomedical research in a French-speaking country with a poorly established health care system in order to increase the understanding of the needs of those communities within the health care field. I have a wide variety of interests, including music performance with the Cello and Viola, the study of French linguistics and history, and Nordic skiing.
