I am a rising eleventh grader at Tandem Friends School in Charlottesville, Virginia. I have taken Biology and Analytical Chemistry and have always been curious about science. I am volunteering in the Yan Lab to understand the practical applications of science in our lives, specifically how laboratory science can help us determining impact of diet on our lives and the lives of future generations. I have always wanted to fully understand the mechanisms that underly the overwhelming problem of obesity in our country. This lab also provides an opportunity for me to gain work experience, learn new techniques, and get an over-all feel for this field as a possibility for my future.
