I am a third year PhD student in molecular biology, my research focuses on understanding the phenomenon called Electrotaxis which is the migration of cells using electric currents.  I am the current Special Events Officer for GSG, this is my second year holding this position. During the last year it was tedious to host online events, but I was successful in hosting some fun parties through different online platforms. I am also the co-social chair for Intersecting Queer Identities and Queer Graduate Caucus. On my free time I enjoy being outside, playing with my dog, and dancing.

This coming year I plan to continue to support graduate student’s needs, as we come out of this pandemic. Moreover, I am so excited to put on some in person events to help foster a space where graduate students can connect with each other in a fun and safe environment. I plan to have themed events to really get people to step out of their shell and discover new things about themselves and each other. If you have any questions involving events by GSG or ideas for future events, please feel free to reach out via email.
