Why I Chose Einstein  

At another New York school where I was applying, I asked the students, "Are you happy?" They said, "We’re grad students. We’re not supposed to be happy." Einstein had a very collaborative atmosphere and everybody seemed happy. People here were excited to tell me about their research and about the prospect of teaching me.

Favority Story About My Research  

I spent my second rotation in Jon Backer’s lab focusing on cell signaling. I hated [cell signaling] in college, but Jon made it sound really interesting. He put me on another project studying a protein involved in nutrient sensing. I ended up falling in love with it.

Best Thing About Being a Student at Einstein  

Here [at Einstein] you have more of a sense of community. There are things to do in the Bronx and there are a lot of things happening on campus.
