Undergraduate Research Assistant
Sophomore in Biochemistry 2017-2021
I am interested in how plants can be genetically modified through removing genes or incorporating foreign DNA, to produce an enhanced trait. By working in the Sederoff lab I hope to the learn skills that will be integral to my future in assuring sustainable growth of fuel and food production, via genetically modified crops and biofuels. Primary work done under Nathan Wilson working on integrating a synthetic Condensed Reverse Tricarboxylic Acid CO2 fixation cycle into Camelina.
I hope to complete my undergraduate degree in Biochemistry by 2021 and continue on to graduate school to advance my knowledge on synthetic biology.
