I graduated from Loyola in 2009 with a B.S. in Biology, B.A. in Music, and a minor in Neuroscience. After graduation I began working in the Neurocritical Care Research Laboratory at the University of Chicago. The focus of our research was on investigating the pathophysiology of ischemic stroke and developing neuroprotective strategies. I then enrolled in the Neuroscience Graduate Program at The Ohio State University in 2013. I am currently working on my thesis project, which focuses on understanding how spinal cord injury alters the peripheral immune system. I have over 9 years of biomedical research experience and expertise in neuroimmunology, central nervous system injury and repair, and molecular and cellular immunology. My current career goal is to complete graduate and postdoctoral training, and perform biomedical research in an academic setting.
