I am currently an IRTA Postbaccalaureate Fellow at the NIH studying cutaneous wound healing in the Weinstein Lab. I received my B.S. in Biological Sciences with a Specialization in Developmental Biology from the University of Chicago. While at the university, I worked in the Kronforst Lab, where I completed a thesis characterizing the expression patterns of aristaless2 throughout embryonic and pupal stages of Heliconius species.
I am fascinated by developmental biology studies, particularly those that deal with regeneration and evo-devo. I am also interested in the establishment of new, untraditional model organisms and their use in comparative work.
