I am currently a fluorescence microscopy specialist in the Dyche Mullins lab at UCSF. I keep all the microscopes running and help graduate students and postdocs get the most out of their imaging.
I was previously a postdoctoral researcher at UC Berkeley, where I worked with a team of chemists, biologists, and engineers to use fluorescence microscopy to reveal the the biophysical underpinnings of cell-cell signaling. I have a PhD in Chemistry from Stanford University, where I worked in the Moerner Lab designing and characterizing fluorophores for single-molecule microscopy in living cells.
