B.A., Molecular Biology and Spanish, University of Colorado, Boulder, CO
I joined the Pasquinelli lab in the summer of 2014. I have had an enduring interest in RNA biology. In the lab, I am exploring the role the miRNA pathway plays in response to certain types of stress. Specifically, I am interested in how miRNAs regulate the heat shock response. When not in the lab I enjoy hiking, camping, reading, and donuts.
