What are your long-term goals? 

I plan to finish medical after defending my dissertation and would like to become a surgical oncologist.

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

At the height of the pandemic, the university shut down. The dean allowed me to continue my research on campus. Since I had finished my first two years of medical school, when the college of medicine needed volunteers to set up the COVID-19 drive through testing I was able to help. I spent half of the day doing research and the other half of the day at the testing center.
