I am interested in understanding how regulation of gene expression during development influences cell fate decisions, particularly in the vertebrate retina. My specific research project focuses on developing new methods to determine which proteins bind to specific DNA sequences interest to drive these developmental differences.
Originally from Florida, I have now lived in New York City (Bronx and Manhattan) for over 7 years and do not plan to leave anytime soon! Outside of research, I am a fan of playing sports and staying active, specifically through long distance running and basketball.
