I am in my 3rd year at Ohio State working on a B.S. in Microbiology. My interest in research was piqued in an introductory biology class where we read an article concerning the human microbiome. I then enrolled in Dr. Benderlioglu's research class and fell in love with the research process. I am passionate about learning new things and just hope to satisfy my curiosity about the natural world around us by participating in different types of research. I hope to be accepted into medical school in the future and continue research to help benefit others.
