What I will remember is an environment that nurtured my enthusiasm for my work and for the field and made many exciting discoveries in membrane biophysics and signaling possible.
I came to Hopkins specifically to work with Dr. Hristova. I met her when I was an undergraduate student when she came for a visit to my undergrad institution. I was interested in her research studying properties of peptides using electrochemical techniques that she developed with Dr. Searson.
My favorite class was computation and programming for materials scientists and engineers. I landed an internship as a data analyst the summer after my freshman year because of the skills I learned from that class alone, so I am forever grateful to Dr. Falk.
