She is interested in incorporating the language of mathematics in real-world applications and hence plans to pursue higher education in Biostatistics, Computational Biology, or Applied Mathematics.
While some of her hobbies include, but are not limited to, running, water-coloring, biking, and learning new languages, her ultimate goal is to give-back to her alma mater by teaching and providing mentorship to young women pursuing STEM degrees.
David previously conducted research in Dr. Karen Aboody's lab profiling a novel neural stem cell line, and is looking to gain a more quantitative understanding on biological phenomena during his time in the Division of Mathematical Oncology to supplement his academic studies and for a more broad appreciation of biological processes. In the future, David hopes to use this background to develop a functional method of using computer-aided protein engineering to treat a variety of diseases.
