Therefore, I decided to pursue a career in this field. I earned my B.S. in Biology from University of Florida. After earning my bachelor’s degree, I because a high school science teacher where I fell in love with the process of educating, mentoring, and inspiring students to achieve their academic goals.

As part of my doctoral research, I investigated HIV-induced inflammation and viral replication in the Central Nervous System. I joined Dr. Kiran C.
