I was born in Ghana but I moved to England at a young age and lived there until I started my undergraduate studies. After completing high school at 16 in England, I played football (soccer) for a top-tier club in England for two years. After that, I decided to attend Radford University in Virginia for undergrad, where I played for the Division 1 men’s soccer team and graduated with a BS in Chemistry. I am now a 3rd-year Biochemistry PhD student in Dr. Indraneel Ghosh's lab. My research involves understanding tyrosine kinase activity and function in signaling pathways and diseases. I study the kinase ABL and other non-Src family kinases by using methods like chemical inducers of dimerization and domain insertion systems to control their activity. Outside of lab work, I enjoy teaching, cooking, working out, and watching sports on TV.
