Current Research:

For my thesis project I am working in the lab of Dr. Williams on the roles of two transcription factors AP-2a and AP-2g on cell migration an​d differentiation during embryonic development as well as the roles of these two genes in reproductive organ and placental development. The AP-2 gene family members are key regulators of mouse embryogenesis and have been linked to human birth defects and reproductive system cancers.

My first love and passion has always been skiing and ski racing, but I love pretty much anything in the mountains, hiking, backpacking, biking, etc.
