    In 2016 I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Medical Laboratory Science from the University of North Dakota, later earning my national certification as a MLS. My lab work in the Microbiology department encouraged my want to not only identify species but also pursue research specifically in pathology progression and transmission. I will be working with 2 species of fruit flies, a native and novel host, to study the host shift of Drosophila C virus. The virulence and evolution of the virus will be tested over the duration of the experiment to better understand host shift occurrences.
