Credentials: MS student
Aom received her BS degree in Food Science with a minor in nutritional sciences from Pennsylvania State University in the Spring of 2022. She completed an undergraduate honors thesis investigating in vitro bioavailability of dietary flavonoids in oral cancer cells. Her research experience led to her interest in nutraceutical and functional foods to prevent chronic diseases (especially cancer). Therefore, she joined the Bolling research group as an MS student in the Fall of 2022 to study peanut polyphenols. Currently, she is working on a pilot study of the anti-cancer effects of phytochemicals from peanuts on leukemia cell lines. In her free time, Aom enjoys running, working out, and listening to music.
