I am a second year biology major. My fields of interest are evolution, genomics, and ecology. I am working with Dr. Mark Jonas, investigating how changes in genome-wide methylation and point mutations affect responses to elevated carbon dioxide, in the model flowering plant Arabidopsis thaliana. I am currently a tutor for General Biology I and Cell Biology. After graduating from Purchase college, I plan to pursue a Ph. D. in evolutionary biology.
