In the summer of 2022, I worked as a laboratory assistant on a project studying red raspberry fungus and was based at a Washington State University agricultural laboratory. During this internship I worked mostly in the lab and performed a variety of tasks and procedures primarily involving the fungus, Botrytis cinerea. Prior to my employment I set learning targets of improving my lab technique, time management, writing skills, and gaining a better understanding of the research process. All of these goals were achieved, and I was able to apply the skills I learned through university coursework in a practical setting in addition to gaining experience beyond the classroom.
