Yeast as a Toolbox for Tropomyosin Isoform Classification
I received my Bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Vermont in 2010 and then joined the CMB program at UVM the same year. During my undergrad, I had the chance to work with Matthew Lord on a project that gave insight into the regulation of actin structure assembly within the yeast cells. I found that studying the cytoskeleton using fission yeast as a model both fun and interesting. I am currently working with Matt on my PhD.
