This summer I had the luxury of working under Dr. Silvia Crivelli and my professor Dr. Shokoufeh Mirzaei on their protein-folding project. It was an amazing experience that challenged my intellectual capacity every day. Over these past 8 weeks I learned much about myself, and much about other fields of study that otherwise I wouldn’t have taken the time to learn. I learned how to program in two languages, R and Python, how to work with supercomputers, and much about microbiology. I have grown close to this project and I hope to continue to help this research develop in any way I can. Overall, I had an amazing experience but it wouldn’t have been as rewarding if I didn’t have the guidance and mentorship of Dr. Crivelli and Dr. Mirzaei. I hope to have others much like this one in the near future.
