University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

I majored in biochemistry at Hamilton College and worked in a biophysical chemistry lab studying antimicrobial peptides. After graduating, I worked as a lab technician in Henry Higgs’ lab at Dartmouth College, studying the formin protein FMNL3. Currently, I’m a second-year graduate student in the Cell Biology and Physiology department at UNC-Chapel Hill. My research in Stephanie Gupton’s lab utilizes approaches in biochemistry, cell biology and neuroscience to study the regulation of the actin polymerase VASP during neuronal development.
