I joined the lab in the Spring of 2018. In lab I am interested in how polyA tails regulate translation and stability of mRNAs and non-coding RNAs, interactions between mRNAs and microRNAs that lead to changes in gene expression, and listening to NPR. Outside of lab, I enjoy taking advantage of the amazing weather in San Diego by spending as much time as possible outside, biking, climbing, or hiking, either in the mountains or by the coast.
