I am a graduate student working on a Masters degree in Food, Agricultural, and Biological Engineering at The Ohio State University. My experience in biological systems stems from my undergraduate capstone project. My team and I worked on development of a detection method for E. Coli on board the International Space Station. My primary duties dealt with growing the lettuce and finding ideal sampling locations for potential contamination. Presented current persistent herbicide contamination and compost research to a ASM 4300: Introduction to Agricultural Engineering course.
