Genetics has always interested me, but adding the aspect of real life conservation applications into the mix makes it even more exciting.
I am currently a Junior at the University of Missouri majoring in Biological Sciences and minoring in Chemistry and Sociology. I plan on applying to Veterinary school after I Graduate in 2019 to become a mixed animal Veterinarian.
Last year in the Eggert lab, I worked on the Nuclear genetic structure of P. tenuis, an elk brainworm found to be infecting the native white tailed deer of Missouri with lethal results. This year I am switching gears to work with Kris Budd on the Asian elephant project where we are evaluating primer selection bias in determining genetic diversity.
