She is currently working on her thesis: "Comparing Whiteboard and 3D Animation in Visualization of 'Neuron-like' Bacterial Communication in Bioiflms." In her free time, she likes to build terrariums, collect moss, and play video games.

    Sarah has accepted a PhD position in Bioengineering at UIC under Dr. Khalili. She will be conducting computational modeling and molecular simulations on claudins channels at tight junctions in epithelial cells.
