Why did you decide to pursue a Ph.D. in Cell Biology, Stem Cells and Development?

I have always been fascinated with cell biology and specifically how cellular structures are created and are transported to where they need to be. The CSD program fit most with my research interests. Also, the people in CSD are the best on campus!

Why did you choose CU's Anschutz Medical Campus?

I chose Anschutz for a number of reasons. First, the collaborative spirit of the campus was really refreshing. Second, the campus is quickly growing and the number of strong professors was a major draw. Finally the graduate students I interacted with when I interviewed were by far the happiest of all the places I interviewed at.

What has been the biggest surprise to you since arriving at AMC?

My biggest surprise has been that acclimating to the weather has not been bad at all. Coming from Southern California there really are no seasons so I thought that having changing weather would be tough to adapt to.

Where did you grow up?

Huntington Beach, California.

When did you start the graduate program at Anschutz Medical Campus?

I started the Biomedical Sciences Program (BSP) in Fall, 2010, and joined CSD this past summer, 2011.

What do you do for fun?

I enjoy to riding my bike, hiking, bowling and playing darts with friends.

What do you like about living in Colorado?

I love that there is something new to do every season.

What do you like about the Anschutz Medical Campus?

I like the open lab spaces and the great professors who get to give seminars constantly. The people are also great!
