After successfully defending my PhD at Ohio State this summer, I’m now settling into my new home in the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology at the University of Connecticut. I’ll be spending my time working on the Pyxicephalus adspersus genome with Dr. John Malone, and also continuing some projects on unisexual Ambystoma salamanders. For more about my current work, head over to the updated research section of this site.
While blog posts here have been rare, I’m still going strong as a member of The Molecular Ecologist team. You can go here to read any of my posts or check out my most recent, a story about scientists trying to figure out the relationship between developing salamanders and the algae that lives inside their cells.
