Hello! I am a graduate student at WCU getting a masters in Chemistry with an expected graduation of May 2023. My graduate research involves building a cavity enhanced spectrometer to infer the status of a plants health based on their gas emissions. After my masters I want to earn a PhD in Analytical Chemistry and build new instruments for the analytical field.

Investigating an Uncharacterized Protein (3UN6) in Staphylococcus aureus NCTC 8325
This research project investigated an uncharacterized protein in Staphylococcus aureus NCTC 8325 (PDB: 3UN6). To identify a possible protein function three assessments were implemented and required bioinformatic programs and databases (BLASTp, InterPro, UniProt, PredictProtein, etc.). We are continuing our investigation and exploring new avenues to build upon our hypothesis, narrow down the transported molecule, and publish our findings.
