Why did you choose science as a career?

I realized that I was very analytical and loved to learn. Science really lets me use my brain while making a positive impact on people.

Why are you passionate about what you're working on?

What I work on has a real possibility of helping patients some day. It builds on the work of others and may help future scientists make important discoveries - that's inspiring.

What is one piece of advice you’d give to young women in the life science sector?

Don't be afraid to advocate for your ideas. Take a seat at table and give your input.
