"I was attracted to the Li Research Group by the use of mass spectrometry to address issues in biomedical fields, which is a special connection between chemistry and biology. I am interested in doing interdisciplinary research. Moreover, among different animals models, crabs are special and unique. Therefore, I would like to explore more on crustacean models."

About Me

I am an undergraduate student at UW-Madison working with Kellen Delaney in the Research Group. Among other projects, I have worked with her on Mass Spectrometry Analysis of Crustacean Neuropeptides. One of the projects I have been working on is method development of mass spectrometry analysis of crustacean hemolymph samples. I also work on comparing differences between male and female crabs based on neuropeptides.

"One thing I enjoy about research with Dr. Li is working with crabs. I am also interested in learning the techniques of mass spectrometry analysis, which I know will benefit my future research and academic endeavors."
