I did my thesis project in Patrick Masson’s Lab at the UW Madison.  I was in the Cellular Molecular Biology graduate program and worked on plant genetics.  My work was a reverse genetics project on a conserved eukaryotic protein called CACTIN.

Previously, my projects included the mitochondrial theory of aging, the molecular evolution of spider venom genes, and various other topics.
