In the long history of humankind (and animal kind, too) those who learned to collaborate and improvise most effectively have prevailed. - Charles Darwin


I am a biology major at Drexel University. After my freshman year studying general biology and chemistry, I have focused exclusively on the taxonomy of the genus Pinnularia since starting my co-op appointment at The Academy of Natural Sciences. Apart from studying diatoms, I hope to explore other areas of biological science while continuing my studies at Drexel University.
