Hobbies and Interests

I am a lover of the performing and fine arts. I enjoy going to symphonies and plays, visiting art exhibits, painting, playing the piano, and singing. When I have free time, I like reading romance novels, watching chick-flicks, and fashion blogging. To destress, I like exercising by lifting weights, and I’ve more recently picked up (salsa) dancing with friends

In these studies, she will employ immunochemistry, molecular, genetic and electrophysiological approaches.
