I am an undergraduate student at SHSU. I have been doing research with Dr. Bucheli and Dr. Lynne for two years. My majors are Forensic Chemistry and Criminal Justice with a minor in Biology. I became interested in this research when I was taking a forensic anthropology class at STAFS. After going out to the facility a few times, I began to develop an interest in how microbiology and entomology were being used to find an estimated time of death. My favorite thing about this project is collecting the data at the facility. I also enjoy working with the data once it is sequenced. My future goals are to work as a forensic microbiologist for either the FBI or CIA. I like being a part of a team and working with different individuals in a research setting. This will further my growth in the research field and I will be able to apply the knowledge I have gained in the work field.
