Advisor: Dr. Huai (Howard) Deng (Biology)

Education: B.S. Biology (with minor in Chemistry) - University of Minnesota, Duluth

Specialty Area: Cell Biology, Cell Stress Response Mechanisms

Thesis Research: The goal of my research is to uncover the interaction of CncC/dKeap1 and epigenetic modifiers using Drosophila melanogaster as mechanistic support for the emerging model that environmental toxins, which cause cell stress, can lead to adaptation through epigenetic regulation of developmental genes.
