2007 Major: Biology; certificate in Information Sciences & Information Studies

How has being a Biology graduate from Duke helped shape your professional success?

"Marine lab courses were very good, teachers spend the time to teach concepts that not only apply to marine science, but also basic science principles courses at duke in biology were not teaching focused, in the end, I did learn some concepts, but additional test prep was needed to prepare for dental exams."

What advice would you give students in Biology?

"I advise biology students to explore opportunities at the marine lab to get a better hands-on lab experience and explore the sciences from a truly unique perspective."
