PhD in Molecular Biophysics
FSU Legacy Fellowship
I previously earned my B.S. degree in Chemistry (emphasis in biochemistry) in May of 2017 from the University of Southern Mississippi.
I am interested in researching how enzyme promiscuity affects core metabolic pathways, and what repair mechanisms have evolved to combat these potentially deleterious reactions. My teaching interests involve enzyme kinetics as well as metabolism.

The Fellows Society here at Florida State has allowed me to interact with so many other talented graduate students outside of my area of study that I possibly would never have met otherwise. Whether it be through luncheon socials where students present their own research, or other events such as dinner at the President's house, I have been lucky to have so many opportunities to interact with other motivated and brilliant students across all disciplines who will no doubt play a role in molding our future as a society.
