Originally from Bowie, MD, I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Bucknell University in 2010 ('Ray Bucknell!). From there I joined the lab of Corbin D. Jones at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill as a research technician. I spent 1.5 years there honing my skills in molecular labwork and bioinformatic scripting. I also wrote for Endeavors, the UNC magazine of research and creative activity (see 'PUBS' for samples of my work).
While at UNC I applied and was accepted to the Behavior, Ecology, Evolution and Systematics PhD program at the University of Maryland in College Park, to work with Michael J. Braun at the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of Natural History in a collaboration between those two institutions. I successfully defended my PhD from that program in August 2017.
I am currently a National Science Foundation postdoctoral fellow at the National Institutes of Health's National Eye Institute.
