Advisor: Dr. Brian Sheridan

B.S. Biology, 2015, University of New Haven
B.S. Forensic Science, 2015, University of New Haven

I received BS degrees in both Forensic Science and Biology, as well as a minor in Chemistry, from the University of New Haven in 2015. Throughout my time at UNH, I participated in several research projects, which centered around the development of PCR assays to detect disease-causing mutations in the PAH, BRCA1, NF-1, and SNRPN genes. In the fall of 2015, I joined Stony Brook University's PhD program in Molecular and Cellular Biology, and subsequently joined Brian Sheridan's lab in the spring of 2016, where I will be working on developing Listeria-based oral vaccines.
