I am a 2007 graduate of Purdue University with a B.S. in Biology. I earned my Ph.D. in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in 2014. I taught for biology one semester at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. From there I came to Earlham as a Visiting Assistant Professor in 2015, and became an Assistant Professor at Earlham in 2016.
I am currently setting up my human cell culture lab at Earlham. I will be working on the CFTR gene and its regulatory elements. I will be using the cutting-edge genome editing technique known as CRISPR to edit human cells and compare their 3d genome structure with non-edited cells. I will analyze the effects of mutation on CFTR expression. I will be collaborating with Dr. Kat Bartlow to examine the 3D genomic differences between two types of neuronal cells expressing different genes. Students who are interested in a particular disease gene are welcome to bring their own project to the lab, and we will examine its 3D structure.
