Undergraduate student

  • Saint Johns Prepatory School, Graduated top 5% of class, class of 2014
  • B.Sc in Chemistry Specialization in Biochemistry- University of Virginia
Research Interest:
  • Serum Albumin (SA) as a protein carrier and its interactions with drugs across various model organisms
  • Protein structure determination and refinement
  • My current research is focused on investigating the interactions between equine serum albumin (ESA) and a collection of anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory drugs. Human serum albumin (HSA) functions in a very similar way and the final goal of this research project is to compare if the mode of interactions with drugs between various organisms and human are conserved .
