I received my Ph.D. from Sul Lab at UC Berkeley. There I studied transcriptional control of adipose tissue development and differentiation. My most recent work focused on characterizing early adipose precursors that express Pref-1 and Sox9, key genes that inhibit adipogenesis. Currently, I am developing a high-throughput phage display pipeline to tackle understudied ion channels as well as other membrane proteins. In my free time I enjoy traveling, hiking and cooking.
