I am a recent graduate of Duquesne University’s Bayer School of Natural and Environmental Sciences. I earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Biochemistry, cum laude. In the fall I will be attending Georgetown University to purse a Master’s Degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Upon completion of this degree I plan to complete doctoral studies.
During my tenure at Duquesne I served as a tutor to student athletes. Over the course of this time, I was responsible for coordinating with, managing, and assisting individuals and groups of student athletes in a wide variety of subject areas at various levels including: general chemistry, organic chemistry, and biochemistry; algebra, calculus, differential equations, and statistics; and physics.
Additionally, at Duquesne University I also served as an undergraduate researcher on the project entitled: Characterization of the Lipid Protein Interface in the Human Serotonin Transporter with Tandem Mass Spectrometry. This project was designed to investigate the lipid protein interface with photoactivatable cholesterol, at approximately 15 mol %, with tandem QTOF LC/MC. This two-year project served as the basis for my Honors Senior Undergraduate Thesis. I have also been involved in developing a new analysis of elastography imaging in ultrasonography, which was proven to show statistically significant changes in pathology as opposed to conventional scoring methods. I have presented my work at multiple local and national conferences.
