Summertime Networking

Although summer is a great time to rest and relax, it’s also a chance to network with professionals in fields you’re interested in going into. I love meeting new people and getting to learn about their backgrounds and experiences. I am still on schedule to intern this summer at a biomedical engineering company, but budget[…]

Winter Reads

I'm staying in Washington, DC and New York City over winter break and the weather hasn't been particularly great so far in the east coast. Holiday shopping isn't much fun when the streets are filled with icy mud and slush. I just decided to stay in with my heater and blanket and catch up on some reading.[…]

My first introduction to scientific research was when I began college as a freshman. Everyone was telling me how the U of R medical centre[…]

6 Years and 10 New Majors Later

I never thought that I’d still be at Rochester in 2012.  Honestly, I had no idea what I would be doing when I arrived at Rochester in the fall of 2006, let alone what my life would look like in 2012.  I was totally undecided as an incoming student, a fact that led me to[…]
