Iron storage proteins in bacteria
Understanding the role and mechanics of iron storage, release, and detoxification mediated by the protein ferritin.
I discovered my love for microbiology after taking an introductory course on a whim in my second year in a general biology degree. I ended up gradating with a specialization in the subject, and decided to pursue a graduate degree in order to further my understanding, challenge myself, and open the door for more career opportunities in the future.
Reading, hiking, travelling, movies/television, yoga.
