Biography

Hometown: Naperville, Illinois

High school: Metea Valley High School

Career goal: Bioinformatician

I am currently a sophomore studying Biomedical Informatics. I have always enjoyed learning about genetics and computer science but was not sure how to blend these two passions into a career. IUPUI is currently one of the few universities that offers bioinformatics to undergraduates. With outstanding facilities and faculty, I knew the program would provide the foundation for me.

I am currently an active member of the Biomedical Informatics Club. Being a part of a close-knit community made it easier for me to connect with people who share my passion. I am also an undergraduate researcher in the Janga Research Lab.
