Amelia.jpgI graduated from the University of Guam in May 2017, with a bachelors of science in biology and a minor in chemistry. During my years as an undergraduate, I’ve been involved in an eccentric range of research projects, from extracting hundreds of Gambussia affinis (mosquitofish) gall bladders to investigating the microbial inhibition properties of calamodin essential oils.


However, it was not until the summer of my junior year that I was able to dive into the real world of research. Under the mentorship of my research advisor, Dr. N.K. Suleman, and my prinicipal investigator Dr. J.P. Dinnocenzo at the University of Rochester, I investigated the unusual fragmentation selectivities of aryltrialkylstannae cation radicals. This was a great experience for me and has helped me discover my interest in research.


I entered the Discovery PREP program with the goal to pursue a career in the biomedical sciences. I am currently working on the effects of MG53 autoantibodies in membrane resealing impairment and its effect on Idiopathic Inflammatory Myopathies under Dr. Noah Weisleder. I am hoping to gain the skills and experience necessary to succeed in graduate school.


Aside from my studies, I enjoy staying active and exploring the outdoors. I hope to enjoy my time in Columbus and make lasting friendships with those I meet along the way.​

What's next? After receiving several offers from top tier universities, I've decided to pursue my PhD at the University of Florida.
