Biological Engineering



I am from

Baton Rouge, LA

My hobbies are

Riding horses, drawing, and painting

My most memorable experience as a Scholar

The most interesting thing I remember is visiting the Animal and Dairy Science Department in the Vet School with our research class. Some of us had class directly before that and traffic was awful, so we were really late and Dr. Oppenheimer was so concerned -- it was really funny!

I would like to

I want to obtain a duel DVM-PhD degree and teach equine international medicine at a College of Veterinary Medicine.

Current research

I work with Dr. Cyprianna Swiderski in the MSU CVM researching equine asthma, its mechanisms, and potential treatment options.
