I am currently a PhD student in the Quantitative Biomedical Sciences program at Dartmouth in the lab of Dr. Caitlin Howe. My undergrad degree was from Brigham Young University (Provo) in Bioinformatics and I got a double minor in Computer Science and Business Management. My research work prior to Dartmouth involved a summer internship with the Utah Public Health Laboratory, research work for the Piccolo and Farrell labs at BYU, and a summer internship at Harvard University in the SIBMI program (Summer Institute in Biomedical Informatics). Between graduating and starting at Dartmouth, I worked as a software developer for Decisely, a start-up aimed at improving healthcare insurance options. The many research projects I was able to be involved in, including my work at Decisely, helped me gain appreciation for and a commitment to computational work in a biomedical realm. In spare time I have, I enjoy playing the piano and guitar, swimming, trying new recipes, and spending time with friends and family.
