Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine
I grew up in a rural town near Buffalo, NY. I completed undergraduate degrees in Biomedical Engineering and Biology at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH. My focus was neural engineering and the application of electrical technology to excitable cells. I was privileged to be involved in the technological design and clinical application of devices that bestow functionality upon individuals with spinal cord injury. The summer before vet school, I worked with clinical cardiologists and research electrophysiologists at Cornell to model ventricular tachycardia in canines.
Above all else, I enjoy the outdoors. Whether it is reading or camping in the summer, snowboarding in the winter, or hiking in any season, I love to be outside. I also enjoy Buffalo sports, especially hockey, and am learning to play guitar.
I want to work in academia as a boarded specialist and researcher, advancing clinical technique, biomedical science, and translational technology. Following my background in electrophysiology, I am most attracted to neurology, cardiology, or pain management. I also look forward to the teaching aspect of this career.
