Research Interests:

After completing my master's degree, I worked as a lab technician for three years at several plant biology labs at the University of California, Davis. I joined the Buckler group after my family moved to Ithaca. As a lab technician in the Buckler Lab, I’m collecting tissue samples; extracting DNA, RNA and protein samples; preparing DNA and RNA libraries for next-generation sequencing protocols; and sample sequencing. My duties also include assisting in designing and optimizing non-standard protocols.
