Princess works part time at HITLAB and at Columbia University Medical School, as neuroendocrinology researcher where she conducts immunoassays on patient samples for diabetes and thyroid disorder research. Prior to this, she received her Bachelor of Science in Plant Science and Human Health from Cornell University. During her undergrad years, she completed research apprenticeships with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF), presenting her findings at the National Science and MHIRT research symposiums.
Working in the Aregullin Phytochemistry Lab and the Kao-Kniffin Microbiology lab developed her interests in pharmaceuticals and plant compounds. Being a member of Cornell University Sustainable Design aided in fostering her interest in biotechnology and sustainability. Being on the executive team of TEDxCornell helped her to appreciate novel ideas and be open to innovation in all fields.
When she’s not working, Princess enjoys volunteering at schools in STEM lessons, making green smoothies, yoga, travel and reading books. She is also a member of the United Nations Association.
