I am a third year undergraduate Honors student in the Johnson Lab. Over the summer I worked on the necropsy team, dissecting animals that came to us from California and identifying their parasites. This semester, I am focusing more on my long-term interest in human disease. I am researching and developing an assay to test for Giardia antibodies in blood using an ELISA method. My eventual goal is to use this research to formulate a question as the subject of my Honor's thesis.
In my free time I enjoy all things outdoors. I am a member of the CU Triathlon team and if I am not in lab or studying, you will find me hiking, running or biking around Boulder.
