• Ashland High School, Ashland, OH - Valedictorian, Class of 2015 (rank 1 out of 244)
  • B.Sc. in Chemistry (Specialization in Biochemistry), University of Virginia - in progress, expected graduation in 2019
Research Interest:
  • Serum albumin (SA) as a protein carrier and its interactions with drugs across various model organisms
  • Protein structure determination and refinement
  • My research is focused on investigating the interaction between human serum albumin (HSA) and cetirizine. Additionally, I am interested in the interactions between commercially available non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and serum albumins from cow, rabbit, mouse, and horse. The final goal is to compare the modes of drug interactions between HSA and the other albumins.
