I graduated from Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC in 2010 and spent some time working in the Boston biotech sector before coming to graduate school. In 2015, I joined Pf. Joshua Coon’s lab as part of the chemical biology path. My research has centered on improving and applying glycoproteomic methods to study the cell surface changes that occur in consequence to oncogenic transformation.
