Associate Professor Department of Biology

I received my graduate and postdoctoral training during an era in which the applications of “Next-Generation Sequencing” (NGS) have grown tremendously. I have applied these techniques to diverse biological questions, driving discovery across the field of plant epigenetics and genomics. My Ph.D. degree in Plant Biology and Master’s degree in Genetics have required extensive training in experimental or “wet lab” approaches; in addition, I earned two other Master’s degrees, one in Statistics and one in Bioinformatics, which greatly facilitated the development of my own “data-driven, hypothesis-generating” style of research.

Research

The primary focus of our research is the application of high-throughput techniques to the study of plant epigenetics, a field that is the nexus of non-coding RNA, DNA methylation and chromatin modifications. We are poised to offer our own unique perspective in addressing important biological questions in the big-data era.
