Research

I am specifically interested in uncovering some of the basic mechanisms of neurological development and function. I am currently engaged in research using the model organism C. elegans, which has just eight dopaminergic neurons, in order to study the regulation of dopaminergic neuron function by a transcription factor called FKH-8.

Goals

Education has always been the quintessential aspect of my life and as an underrepresented minority my ultimate goal is to increase the diversity in our education system starting in college institutions because that is where the spark can grow to a fire.
