Stefani is pursuing a major in anthropology with a certificate in human biology. She has worked in the facial morphometrics lab focusing in analyzing 3D facial images of those with facial dysmorphologies stemming from genetic conditions. She is currently creating a literature review with the goal of submitting a peer-reviewed publication on the effect of DYRK1A haploinsufficiency on facial morphology, likely targeting the American Journal of Medical Genetics A . In addition to her research, Stefani has served roles in the University of Central Florida (UCF) as a Conference Assistant and a Resident Assistant, a Student Assistant at the UCF John C. Hitt library, and as Secretary and President of the UCF Lambda Alpha Anthropology Honor’s society. Upon graduation, Stefani hopes to attend graduate school and complete her graduate degree in biological anthropology. She hopes to one day become a primatologist and continue genetics related research.
