I am currently a junior at the University of Missouri and planning to graduate in 2018. I am pursuing a B.S. in biological sciences as well as minoring in chemistry and psychology. I plan to earn a doctorate in veterinary medicine and ultimately specialize in exotic animals.
My research interests include genomics and conservation ecology.
In the Eggert lab, I work on the Mitochondrial genetic structure of P. tenuis, an elk brainworm found to be infecting the native white tailed deer of Missouri with lethal results. My work could help determine host parasite interactions, and disease spread.
