Research Assistant II

I am a research assistant in the Diwan Lab. I am post-grad with a Bachelors of Arts in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from Washington University in St. Louis. I began research as an undergraduate where I investigated protein pathways in cell morphology. Once I graduated in 2017, I joined the Diwan Lab. Here I assist in pursuing the role of protein aggregates in cardiac and sarcomeric biology. Besides doing lab work, I enjoy tending my garden and baking treats for the lab.
