I am a Duke University graduate with a BS in psychology and a minor in biology. Currently, I am a med student. One of my inspirations to pursue medicine was my experience with writing Genotopia, a series of 3 sci-fi novels about genetically-engineered animals with disease-curing superpowers.
The 3 novels take place in a world afflicted by bizarre, imaginary diseases, and genetically modified animals. My fascination with biology, animals, and the power of the human mind, drove me to write the series. Writing about imaginary characters sparked my fascination with human psychology, while writing about imaginary diseases that threatened my characters sparked my fascination with biology, physiology, and a lifelong career as a physician.
