I’m a PhD student in the CBI program which is based on the Homewood campus in the Chemistry department. I’m originally from Michigan where I attended Alma College. There I worked with Dr. Beckman on neuraminidase and the morphological changes it causes when expressed in human bronchial epithelial cells. I also spent a summer working on characterizing the protein MNRR1 with Dr. Grossman’s group at Wayne State University. I’m so happy to have joined the Kavran lab.
