Hi, my name is Julie Oh. I
was born in South Korea, but grew up mainly in the United States. I went to
high school in Irvine, California, and I recently received my BS in Cornell
University, majoring in molecular biology. My undergraduate research was mainly
about RNA editing in plants. I worked on a project characterizing the Arabidopsis RNA editing-Interacting
Protein (RIP) family for their affect on RNA editing in organelle genes. I find molecular biology and biotechnology
most exciting. The idea of studying the unknowns to make it known for the first
time is what lures me more and more into research science. For now, with my limited knowledge and experience, I
cannot pinpoint to a definite research topic, and I wish to explore different
areas of biology broadly in Columbia.
I am an active person who is very easy to get along. I enjoy swimming,
snowboarding, scuba diving, golfing, playing tennis, and pretty much every
sport. I also love nature and traveling. I'm looking forward to my a life in
New York City with whole new people!
