Damon Runyon Cancer Research Fellow
Howard Hughes Medical Institute Fellow
 
I conducted my post-doctoral research in the laboratory of Min Han of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
 
My research primarily focused on the molecular mechanisms involved in cell migrations that occur during the development of the small roundworm, C. elegans, and their relationship to cancer cell metastasis in humans. I also explored neuronal development in this model organism and how it relates to human developmental disorders that cause epilepsy.

Ph.D. in Molecular & Cellular Biology
 
I conducted my graduate research in the laboratory of Roy Parker of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
 
My dissertation explored the mechanisms of mRNA decay in the brewers yeast, S. cerevisiae. My research led to the identification and characterization of the CCR4 deadenylase, the enzyme required for removal of poly(A) tails from mRNAs.

B.S. in Molecular Biology
 
At Fort Lewis College, I majored in biology, studying such topics as anatomy, physiology, and cellular and developmental biology, with a strong emphasis in molecular biology, genetics, and biochemistry.
