Graduate Student, Kinesiology/CAHNR (Affiliate)

Research Overview

My current research as a Master’s student includes mechanisms of adaptation and protection during whole body and cellular stress in humans and Caenorhabditis elegans. As an InCHIP Graduate Student Affiliate, I plan to work on projects that examine aspects of health and protein function during stress and aging. As an undergraduate, I worked with the Korey Stringer Institute at UConn on a project investigating relationships between blood-based biomarkers and sport performance.
