Elijah Keeswood
/

My name is Elijah Keeswood. I am Navajo and Apache. I will be a senior at the University of Arizona. I major in Biomedical Engineering and minor in Biochemistry. I work with Dr. Anne Cress at the University of Arizona Cancer Research Center. Our research focuses on epithelial cancer invasion and metastasis.

My main job in the lab is to analyze the images of the cancer samples from ourexperiments. These samples are new and never been seen before. Since they are specific, I must figure out ways of manipulating features of the analysis software to meet the needs of analyzing these samples. I am looking at these images for hours, but I like it, so I believe that I have an aptitude for visual activities. In my free time I enjoy drawing, watching movies, and playing fighting video games. I also like finding new music. I have found a lot, thanks to KXCI.
