B.S. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Massachusetts Amherst
I am interested in studying the molecular and neurohormonal mechanisms underlying neural connectivity. During my undergraduate work, I investigated the vectoring of viruses in Musca domestica (housefly). My aim was to understand the pathological impact of the hypertrophy virus (SGHV) in the morphology and ultrastructure of the salivary glands of houseflies.
