Biography

I have been married for over a decade and have a five-year old daughter and two year-old twin daughters. I love to bike, throw Frisbee, read Stephen King and spy books, and eat sushi. Most of all, I love to talk about, learn, and teach science!

Research, Presentations & Publications

As a graduate student, I investigated the mechanisms governing carrier domain translocation and positioning in the enzyme pyruvate carboxylase. I have presented posters at many conferences and given an oral presentation at the Experimental Biology 2018 conference in San Diego, CA.
