I am Course 20 and work in the Lauffenburger Lab at MIT. I learned about OpenWetWare from the Undergraduate BE Board wiki, and from 20.109(S08).

Originally I'm from [Big Rapids, Michigan] and am very happy to be in Boston. I play oboe in the MIT Wind Ensemble, and am stoked that an oboe was featured in a [superbowl commercial] this year. I also volunteer at MIT [blood drives] because my iron level is too low to donate. Golfing, dancing, and baking are pretty high on my priority list.


  • 2006 - Graduate - Big Rapids High School
  • 2010 - Course 20 - Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Research interests

  1. Immunology

Have you taken

7.05/5.07 (Biochemistry)
7.06 (Cell Biology)
7.02 (General Biology Lab)
5.310 (General Chemistry Lab)
Have you taken any of these classes?

  • Currently taking 7.05.

Do you have any experience culturing cells (mammalian, yeast or microbial)?

  • Yes

Do you have any experience in molecular biology (electrophoresis, PCR, etc)?

  • Yes? (not those specifically, but I have dealt with molecular biology)

Please briefly describe any previous laboratory experience

With Lauffenburger Lab I have done:

  • Western Blots
  • Cell culture (fluid suspension, not petri dish)
  • Hematocytomer/Vicel Cell Counts
  • ELISAs
  • BCA Analyses
  • Flow Cytometry experiments with Flowjo analyses.

Anything else you would like us to know?

My UROP grad student is looking into RT-PCR and other aspects of this class, so I'm excited to parallel my work with 20.109. I'm stoked to learn more BE stuff.
