||My name is Ellen Rumley and I am a sophomore physics major with a chemistry minor at Willamette University. This will be my third year actively involved in Dr. Altman's biophysics research. I am a senior physics major currently working on my thesis, which will be a continuation of my Carson Project I began my sophomore summer. I will be studying the force-dependent kinetics of multiple myosin VI monomers, and comparing them to the kinetics of myosin VI dimers as previously studied by Dr. Altman in his graduate research at Stanford in 2008. I am excited to learn more about the impact of myosin configurations on their kinetic properties.
