Position title: Assistant Professor, Department of Genetics





Ph.D. in Biology, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, USA
Postdoctoral in Biology, Stanford University, Stanford, CA, USA

Research Description:

As a recently appointed Assistant Professor of Genetics at UW Madison, and I am building a research program that aims to understand how neurons maintain cellular homeostasis in adulthood, what causes neuron decline with aging. Our research draws from my training in advanced genetic, molecular, and fluorescence microscopy methods in C. elegans (14). It sits at the intersection between my expertise from my PhD training in cellular proteostasis and stress (1) and my expertise from my postdoctoral training in neuron cellular and molecular biology (24). It also draws from my experiences performing creative and innovative research, including developing novel genetic technologies to study neuron cell biology (24).

Research Key Words:

Cellular Homeostasis, Cellular Neurobiology, Aging
