I received my B.S. in Microbiology and my B.S. in Biology from the University of Idaho in 2022. I focused my undergraduate career on science communication and education through my work in multiple student organizations, university committees, and internships. After graduating, I worked as a Marketing Consultant and Social Media Manager for two women’s health startups based out of Seattle, Washington. I returned to the University of Idaho to pursue an M.S. in Biology.
My current research focuses on the manipulation of the pantothenate to coenzyme A biosynthesis pathway as a means for controlling the transmission of malaria and the effects of these manipulations on mosquito reproduction and life history traits.
