I am originally from Atlanta, Georgia and graduated from the University of Georgia in May 2014 with a Bachelors of Science in Genetics and Biology. With a rise in obesity rates and personal health awareness my research interests include studying adiposity and obesity. More specifically, my primary interests are rooted in the mechanism of the development metabolic diseases due to particulate matter exposure during gestation and post-natal development.
