Providing diagnostic information to patients is very important work, it could help so many people in providing them results that could mean they gain the treatment they need that could save their lives. And possibly the lives of other people with cytogenetics.

I've always been fascinated by energy systems. From what I've researched, you guys mainly do lighting optimization, which is really neat. It's really interesting to me how much lighting can affect a space and what goes on in it. My favorite part, though, is probably the energy efficiency aspect of it all. That's something I've always wanted to do - make things better, more efficient.

I really enjoy myself in a lab setting. I am a kinesthetic and visual learner, so a laboratory setting really complements the way I learn as well as the way I enjoy doing things whcih is through movement and visual observations. I have always loved the fact that you learn something in lecture, like how a specific molecule is made, but then in the laboratory you actually make that molecule, is fantastic. It helps to understand and calrify so many concepts as well as the fact that its fun. I love being able to look at the colours, the textures, of chemicals, learn about thier properties, how to use them. I also have an artistic background in fine arts so it definatly challenges me to use my right brain and so my visual experince and history with colour and opacity helps me in the lab a lot because alot of the qualitatuive assesment is based on this judgement.

I am interested in sustainability, and water is one of the key resources that need to be conserved and taken care of, but sadly, it is being wasted and contaminated by human beings. I did some research about the Professor Ohman's lab. And, it was on population ecology of marine zooplankton. Even though his lab and my interest are not directly related, I believe that I need to understand microorganisms in water in order to study in depth in water sustainability and how microorganisms affect animals. Also, his research interests include climate change effects and California current ecosystem LTER site, which I am interested in too.

My passion for the work done at the clinical laboratories within BSLI stems from my passion and thirst for knowledge and growth. The work done at BSLI is vital for determining the fate of the products tested, and the companies producing the products. Additionally, the safety of these products is of utmost importance, as most people can attest to the negative experiences of adverse reactions to any product.
