PhD Candidate in Genetics developing in-vivo metabolomics approaches using NMR. I'm currently exploring the metabolic dynamics of genetic perturbations in Neurospora crassa.

I also enjoy weightlifting, mountain biking, boxing, and electronic music.

Other Affiliations:

B.S. Appalachian State University (2015)


Research Interests:
  • in vivo metabolomics 
  • molecular genetics of the circadian clock in the filamentous fungus Neurospora crassa
  • NMR metabolomics data analysis and visualization tool development

We have recently developed a way to monitor abundant metabolites in microorganisms in vivo and in real time using NMR. Using this method I ask questions like:

  • how does metabolism adapt to nutritional, environmental, and genetic perturbations?
  • what can we discover about the underlying dynamics of metabolism using these data to drive detailed kinetic models? (in collaboration with Yue Wu, IOB)
