Research assistant, Department of Biochemistry

University of Colorado Boulder

I’m a biochemistry research assistant in the Liu lab at the University of Colorado Boulder, where I’m currently studying the cell signaling processes that control cell motility in epithelial cells. I’m getting ready to head to the University of California, Santa Cruz this fall to pursue a master’s degree in Science Communication.

I host and produce Buffs Talk Science, a podcast about science from CU Boulder and Beyond, and serve as editor in chief at the Science Buffs STEM blog. I’m good at crossword puzzles and tabletop RPGs but bad at roller skating and beekeeping.
