Pierson ‘24


Molecular Biophysics & Biochemistry (MB&B)


Sara is originally from Belgrade, Serbia, but has also called Los Angeles her home since the age of nine. On campus, she is involved with the Women in Science at Yale (WISAY) organization, and she also volunteers with the American Red Cross at Yale and at the HAVEN Free Clinic. She is involved in research in the MB&B department and has a particular interest in studying the presence and functional effects of RNA modifications. She is looking to attend medical school after graduation. Sara enjoys being outside during her free-time, and she specifically enjoys hiking, running, and walking (both around campus and in nature!) In addition to spending time in nature, she loves going to coffee shops around New Haven and is excited when they have gluten-free oat milk for lattes. She is looking forward to being a SAS Peer Liaison and is excited to welcome the class of 2027!

Sara works with students in Pierson, Davenport, and Berkeley colleges.
