Cassandra obtained a B.S. in Biology from Walsh University with minors in Chemistry, History and Sociology. Now a current BSTP student within the Department of Physiology and Biophysics, Cassandra has begun her graduate studies under the supervision of Dr. Michael Decker. Throughout her graduate career, Cassandra intends to focus on how the body reacts under extreme environmental conditions. Both her wet-lab experience and her passion for the history of space medicine has led her to Case Western in order to combine both of her passions while pursuing a PhD. In her free time, Cassandra enjoys playing guitar, trying all of the restaurants Cleveland has to offer and most importantly, cheering on all Pittsburgh sports teams.
