Biography

I am a third-year student attending the University of Central Florida pursuing a B.S. in biotechnology. I am an undergraduate researcher in the lab of Dr. Anna Savage, Department of Biology at the University of Central Florida. I currently research the genotype-phenotype association of an important root trait in the common bean under the tutelage of Dr. Anna Savage and Dr. John Hart, Earthwork Seeds. I previously led an undergraduate research project on evaluating the roles of flavin reductase related and ubiquinone methyl transferase related proteins in Arabidopsis thaliana in the laboratory of Dr. Klaas van Wijk, Department of Plant Biology at Cornell University. In the future, I will attain a Ph.D. in plant breeding to develop new crop cultivars that are more disease resistant by utilizing bioinformatics and high throughput phenotyping.
