DSCB Graduate Student (2012)
223 CARL Building/Box 3175 DUMC
Durham, N.C. 27710
I grew up in a small town in Western Pennsylvania and moved down the river to Pittsburgh for my undergraduate degree. At the University of Pittsburgh, I studied molecular biology and worked in the lab of Dr. Beth Stronach where we studied MAPK signaling during Drosophila embryogenesis. I came to Duke through the Developmental and Stem Cell Biology training program. I joined Debby Silver’s lab where we work on neural stem cells of the developing mouse brain. My project is focused on asymmetric RNA localization in neural stem cells during brain development. When I’m not in the lab, I enjoy cooking, hiking, exploring craft beers, and rooting for Pittsburgh sports teams (go Pens!).
