Research Interest: Host defense mechanisms to intracellular pathogens
As an undergraduate, I studied biochemistry at the University of New Hampshire. There, I did research in the laboratory of Dr. Feixia Chu where we investigated histone modification patterns using a mass spectrometric approach. After my undergraduate studies, I moved directly into graduate work at Duke University. I joined the lab of Dr. Jörn Coers where I will be researching host defense mechanisms to intracellular pathogens.
When not in lab, I enjoy playing guitar and reading.
