Brief biography

I started out my academic journey as a first-generation college student at Lorain County Community College in Ohio, then moved to the University of Rochester to complete my B.S. in Biochemistry. 

I came to Wisconsin in 2017 to start my doctoral training at the University of Wisconsin – Madison in the Integrated Program in Biochemistry. At UW Madison, I joined the Audhya lab, where I studied a group of proteins known as the Endosomal Sorting Complex Required for Transport (ESCRT) machinery. ESCRT proteins play important roles in several cellular membrane remodeling processes such as nuclear envelope sealing, endolysosomal transport, and even cell division.

I am excited to join the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry here at UWL as a member of the teaching faculty.
