Bio

I am a doctoral student in the DeGennaro Lab. I received my B.S in Biology from Florida International University. I am interested in genetics, molecular biology, and its applications to controlling mosquito borne diseases.

Project

My research focuses on developing and optimizing genetic tools to manipulate Aedes aegypti olfactory receptor neurons to reveal new aspects of mosquito host detection.
