I am a sophomore majoring in Neuroscience from Carmichael, California. I plan to attend medical school after I graduate from BYU. I served as a missionary for two years in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
My research project involves developing a forward and reverse primer set for the Internal Transcribed Spacer region for tardigrades. These primers will be used to study topics such as population genetics, phylogenetics, and species delimitation.
I like to listen to music (The Killers, Interpol, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Panic! At the Disco, Maroon 5, etc.) and watch TV shows (House, Numb3rs, and Arrested Development) in any free time!
