I am a research assistant currently working under Dr. Ken Catchpole and Dr. Myrtede Alfred at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC). I joined this team in 2020 to assist with a study investigating and designing interventions regarding flow disruptions during robotic assisted surgeries. Since starting at MUSC, I have also become involved with projects related to anesthesia medication safety, non-operating room anesthesia, and retained foreign objects.
I received my B.S. in public health from the College of Charleston in 2019. There, I had the opportunity to participate in research projects related to topics in women's health. Through the College of Charleston, I created and tested a public health educational presentation intended to adjust the knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs of women on campus towards endocrine disrupting chemicals in personal care products. At Hollings Cancer Center, I analyzed samples of the oviducts of mice and explored the potential impacts of varied genotypes on tumorigenesis.
