I am a Postdoc in the lab of Kevin Foster at the University of Oxford. I completed my PhD in the lab of Vanni Bucci at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, and formerly spent two years in the lab of Chris Brigham, now at WIT. The primary purpose of this page is to be a central location for finding protocols/reagents/media I've developed or those which I've used, so as to be more easily reproducible and accessible by anyone interested. I'll be sure to reference all those documents which provided initial inspiration or guidance for me. When I started graduate school, I had zero practical wet lab experience. A few short years later, and now I've become a pretty savvy experimentalist. I hope you find some of my advice helps you to accomplish your goals!
