I am currently a NIH NRSA postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Lucy Shapiro in the Department of Developmental Biology at Stanford University. In Lucy's lab I study the role of translational control of the cell cycle and development using the bacterium Caulobacter crescentus

I was a Ph.D. student in Olke Uhlenbeck's lab at Northwestern University studying how aminoacyl-tRNAs evolved to bind elongation factor Tu for optimal translation.
