During my undergraduate years at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, as a research assistant I studied the role of autophagy in anal carcinogenesis via transgenic mouse models. After graduating, I worked as an analytical scientist at a contract research organization, performing a variety of analytical testing as well as method optimization/validation for various biopharmaceutical compounds in a variety of formulations and delivery systems.

Why did you come to the Coon lab?
After working as a researcher in industry for several years, primarily characterizing therapeutic monoclonal antibodies through Biacore and LC, I became interested in learning more about the state of analytical chemistry today, and how instruments and methodologies are being changed to push the limits. The Coon Lab is working on exciting cutting edge research, and I am thrilled to be a part of the team.
