I am a third year PhD student in the Biological Engineering Department. My current research focuses on exploring how MK2 regulates the cellular stress response after DNA damage. I received my B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Northwestern University in 2015. This year, I am thrilled to be continuing with the executive board as a co-chair. I look forward to working with GWAMIT to promote empowerment and address women’s issues across campus and in the broader community.
