Short Bio:

Current Developments

I am currently conducting research in a molecular biology laboratory in which I am characterizing species of bacteria that are found on German cockroaches in various day cares and houses of the Greensboro, Highpoint, and Franklin County areas. Once characterized we can determine which species causes asthmatic problems among the inhabitants of these places. In the fall I will be attending UMASS Medical School where I will be studying in their Basic and Biomedical Sciences PhD Program.
