I recently began a research position at Western University's Robarts Research Institute. I will be documenting the progress of my research project each week through this platform. Click below to see my progress and learning journey unfold each week!
How It All Started
For as long as I can remember, I have been curious about space. I would look up at the night sky and let my imagination run free. Space excites me because there is so much left to discover. It is a field that requires a creative and critical thinking approach to solve problems. From a health perspective, I am fascinated by the complexity of the challenges that arise when astronauts are exposed to the harsh environment of space. In my career, I aspire to leverage my educational background in cell biology and anatomy and my passion for space to solve space health challenges.
I am a fourth year undergraduate student at Western University, and serve as the VP Internal with the Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (SEDS) Canada. This past summer, I was fortunate to work on a space health project titled "Evaluating Cytoskeletal Changes in Natural Killer Cells After Simulated Microgravity Exposure." I am currently looking for summer internships for 2023, and I am excited to continue engaging in space health research in my graduate studies.
