“Hello! I am Tara, and I will be this year’s webmaster, and a co-mentorship representative with Colleen Farrell for the NSGSA. As a webmaster, I will be maintaining and keeping this website and our social media platforms up to date. As a mentorship coordinator, myself and Colleen will be matching incoming students to the department with senior students to ensure a smoother transition into graduate school.
I am a 2nd year PhD student in Dr. El-Sohemy’s lab. My research investigates the genetic determinants of micronutrient metabolism and premenstrual symptoms. Outside of the lab, I enjoy reading, baking, cycling and spending time with my loved ones!
If you have any questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact me.”
