Aimi Tanada – Vice President

Name: Aimi Tanada
Major: Biology – Ecology, Evolution, & Behavior, Music
Year: 3rd year

Position: Vice President
Duties: My main duty is to do “everything else” that other officers may not be able to do. I support the president and take care of scheduling various events throughout the year.

Research: I am currently a mentor and researcher in Dr. Alan Lloyd’s FRI-Cell Fate Regulation Stream. Our research focuses on genetic pathway analysis of key regulator genes in the model organism Arabidopsis thaliana. Basically, we mess around with genes in plants :)

SURGe: I joined SURGe my first semester at UT and have been with these research-loving people for 2 years. I’ve been a part of the FRC and I’ve also helped out the PRC in times of need. I also worked the position of secretary the past school year and am hoping to work hard to make this organization even more resourceful and exciting for all undergraduates at UT.
