M.S. 2016, Purdue University



Specific Interests
My research focuses on understanding the transport mechanisms of essential and non-essential metals at the cellular level. I am particularly interested in how changes in water chemistry affect the uptake of metals, and what strategies animals use to maintain metal homeostasis. I use both in-vitro and in-vivo fish models for my research.
