I came to the United States four and a half years ago. I received my first Master’s degree in Biology at Villanova and worked on my thesis “Do elevated CO2 and nitrogen pollution stimulate decomposition in a brackish marsh?” with Dr. Adam Langley. I took a Biostatistics class in the Biology Department for my thesis and found I had a strong interest in it. After talking with several professors, I started my second Master’s in the Applied Statistics Program in 2011. I have been a teaching assistant and research assistant in both the Biology and Statistics Programs and I also work in the Mathematics Learning and Resources Center. My great experience at Villanova has built up my knowledge, developed my research abilities, and improved my communication skills. I am going to the PhD Program of Biostatistics at the University of Pennsylvania this fall and I am very glad that Villanova has helped me get ready for this new journey.
