Hi! Well to start, I spent my high school years in the middle of a desert Ė the Sahara Desert actually, which made me appreciate the greener things in lifeÖ I came to Laurier after studying in Michigan for two years and I love it! I am currently in my last year (yay!) of a BSc in Honour Biology and Iím currently working in Mihai Costeaís lab as we try to discover more about the breeding system of Cuscuta by determining the pollen to ovule (P/O) ratio in various species. I have come to gain a great appreciation of plants, through taking Ethnobotany, Molecular Biology of Plants and working in the lab.

 

When Iím not in the lab or classes, I enjoy shopping and hanging out with friends and family. I love to travel and experience new things. I donít play many sports anymore (unless Wii Sports count) but I love watching NCAA football (Go Blue)! With the winter months quickly approaching I hope to get out and learn how to snowboard without breaking any bones!
