BMCDB Graduate Student
I am a first year graduate student in the Biochemistry, Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology (BMCDB) Graduate Group. Prior to joining the Korf lab, I had no bioinformatics programming experience, but I quickly fell in love with the beauty and organization of well-written scripts. My research centers on delving into the complexities of milk as well as the processes surrounding its production at the transcriptomic and proteomic levels. I am currently funded through a fellowship from the Designated Emphasis in Biotechnology and formerly funded by NIH Molecular and Cellular Biology Training Grant.
I earned a BS in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology with honors from the University of Nevada, Reno. At this institution, I worked in the Allie M. Lee Cancer Research Center under Dr. Ronald S. Pardini investigating the effect of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids on genetically matched transformed and non-transformed murine lung epithelial cells.
When I'm not in lab, you can find me enjoying the great outdoors, reading or working on the next DIY project for my house.
