“I was originally interested in chemical engineering because I wanted to formulate makeup. From there, I decided to pursue a biomedical engineering major to help Black community members suffering from various conditions and diseases.”
“My research focuses on using nanoparticles to treat maternal/fetal health applications, specifically, bacterial vaginosis in pregnant patients.”
“Ultimately, I decided on maternal/fetal health for my graduate school research in hopes of contributing positively to the field while also being the representation I did not have.”
