I’m currently working as a lab technician on the modENCODE project. This project involves genome-wide mapping of transcription factor binding sites in Drosophila and is funded by NIH. I graduated from the University of Illinois in Urbana Champaign with a B.S. in Integrative Biology and from Southern Illinois University Carbondale with a M.S. in Zoology. My former research has included population genetics in the nurse shark, genetic identification of pallid and shovelnose sturgeon, and population genetics in golden mice.
