Graduate Associate | School of Nutritional Sciences and Wellness
I have a BSc degree in nutritional sciences and an MSc in clinical nutrition. Currently, I am pursuing my PhD in nutritional sciences so that I can gain more in-depth knowledge and have the opportunity to make original contributions to my field of interest. I have always been driven by an inner voice to bring research findings into daily life; hence, I am more fascinated by applied research. Particularly, I am curious about the interplay between nutrition and human physiology (e.g., metabolic syndrome).
Why did you choose the Nutritional Sciences Graduate Program at the University of Arizona?
I really liked the idea behind lab rotations. Moreover, the alignment between my research profile and that of some faculty members was another consideration. The University of Arizona provides advanced facilities, has solid connections, and offers excellent networking opportunities.
