Research Interests

My research interest lies in the early detection of lymphedema, which is a physically and mentally debilitating disease affecting people globally.


I am currently a 6th year student in Dr. Brandon Dixon's Laboratory of Lymphatic Biology and Bioengineering. I completed my Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology in August 2012. In the year inbetween undergraduate and graduate school, I worked at Facet Technologies, LLC. I completed my Master of Science in Bioengineering December 2015 and am continuing on with my PhD in Bioinformatics.
