I am interested in studying genomics and proteomics to gain a better understanding of complex developmental and pathological pathways.
While studying for my BS in bioinformatics I helped research the SOX family of transcription factors, looking at functional domain analysis using molecular dynamics simulations and evolutionary analysis of variants. I graduated in 2018. I started working as a research assistant to Dr. Kevin Peterson in 2019, maintaining multiple lines of mice to study the Hedgehog signaling pathway during embryonic development. We are currently working to study the regulatory mechanisms of the Gli transcription factors.
