After graduating from Saint Cloud State University, I chose to involve myself in working industry as I would like to learn more about in how to apply knowledge into the real life. I decided to go to graduate school as I wish I could go further into research that comes out from my mind and to further my education as well as gaining professional research training.

Nowadays, diseases as well as environmental hazardous particles are still the most powerful threat to human beings. I wish I can become more experienced and well-trained in troubleshooting problems in human toxicology research.
