Research Interests

I am a Florida native and a recent addition to the Zhou lab. I graduated cum laude from the University of Florida in 2016 with a Bachelor of Science in marine sciences. After graduation, I worked as the lead laboratory technician in an environmental and product toxicology testing lab. I enjoy my lab manager position because it gives me the opportunity to learn new techniques and work with people from diverse backgrounds. I strive to provide a safe lab environment and keep the lab running smoothly to promote efficient scientific research. Outside of the lab, I enjoy attending Gator sporting events and exploring Gainesville.
