For three years, I worked at NIH, in the NICHD. I took part in the research being conducted in the lab of Dr. Brant Weinstein, working with vascular morphogenesis in embryonic zebrafish.
Currently, I work with Dr. Andreas Herrlich in the Lodish lab at the Whitehead. We are performing a large-scale high-throughput screen to test the effects a set of shRNAs designed to knock-down most human kinases and phophatases has on ectodomain cleavage. Specifically, we use osmotic stress as a cleavage stimulus to the EGF ligand TGF-alpha. We work in human Jurkat cells, and mouse Baf3 cell lines.

I am familiar with lab environments and tissue culture set-up and usage.
I am a very active person, and tend to dance often, and sing or hum without realizing it. If it causes others around me to get annoyed, please make me aware of what I'm doing and ask me to stop!
