Research Technician I
I started working in research in the beginning of 2018 in the Zhu Diabetes Research Lab at the University of Kansas Medical Center. There my work focused on utilizing molecular biology and chemistry techniques to study fatty acid desaturation, stress response in various mouse tissues, andiron homeostasis.
I joined the Gibson Lab in May 2019 where I use molecular biology techniques to study Nematostella vectensis. I hope to introduce new molecular tools to Nematostella research, including a binary system that will allow for spatiotemporal control of gene expression. I aim to better understand the function and architecture of the nervous system in Nematostella through my work.
