I hold a B.A. degree in anthropology from Stony Brook University. My research interests are in Forensic Biology and Osteology. Prior to joining the Rutgers Master Program in Anthropology, I engaged in several research projects about the influences of different genotype mutations on the volume and density in endochondral and intramembranous bones in mice. Specifically, one of my studies involved the B3glct gene mutant mice as compared to a non-mutant control group, exploring potential factors that contribute to various disease states. I also joined the Percival Lab and developed sophisticated skills in identifying individual osteological compartments from a sample model established by 3D micro CT scans. As a prospective Master student at Rutgers University, I am looking forward to developing my interests and conducting more research in the field of Osteology and Forensic Biology.
