"As of right now, I aim to graduate college, potentially get a master’s degree, and definitely pursue a Ph.D., most likely in biological engineering. While I love research, I am not sure what I want to do after getting my Ph.D. –  become a postdoc and eventually a principal investigator, go into industry, or work in patent law or public policy."
