University of Massachusetts, Lowell
Hello all! My name is Mika and I’m coming out from Massachusetts. I went to the University of Massachusetts Lowell for both my B.S and M.S in biotechnology. During my graduate years I was able to study the binding dynamics of a particular trimolecular interaction related to angiogenesis and wound healing. I have always been interested in studying biology through the perspective of mathematics, and pursued this interest by taking various math courses during my undergraduate years. Since then, I’ve become increasingly fascinated in the computational techniques used to study the troves of biological data that continues to be generated through sequencing and related technologies. When I have free time I can usually be found playing any and all phone games I can get my hands on..
