  • Undergraduate Program Coordinator
I coordinate with faculty, staff, and students in the Biochemistry, Biophysics, & Molecular Biology (BBMB) department to cultivate a world-class and community-driven undergraduate experience.

BBMB is an academic home for ambitious students who want to engage in creative problem-solving that make the world more efficient, healthy, and resilient. BBMB students build a broad foundation of knowledge--from Calculus to Chemistry, Cell Biology to Quantum Mechanics--that prepares them for a future in academia, industry, research, and beyond. Most students work in research labs, and many share their work at the student-led Stupka Undergraduate Research Symposium, which also offers real-world experience in event planning and national networking opportunities.
