What are your long-term goals? 

My long-term career goal is to become a principal investigator in a tenure track faculty position at an institution where I can serve as a mentor for scientists at different levels in their careers.

Please share information about how the pandemic has impacted your research over the last two years. 

Due to the pandemic, access to the laboratory was completely restricted for four months and partially for six months. Restricted access to the laboratory area delayed the experiments, but time was spent on scientific review and writing.
