Austin, you were a smart young man with passion for science. I remember you working independently on your own project, you didn’t need a senior student to guide you when you were a summer research student in Karlett Parra's Lab in 2011. You were a natural born scientist with very creative thoughts. You also were very kind, I remember you helping everyone who needed help in the lab. It's a tragedy to lose such a kind young man who always had a smile for everyone. I appreciate every moment I worked with you.
