Research Assistant

I joined the Kruer lab remotely in March 2020 and began working with Bethany on consent tracking for the individuals involved in the study. I transitioned to bench work in the lab in October 2021 where I worked with Dr. Sara Lewis and developing a heat assay to assess the thermotolerance of Drosophila in different genotype models. Finally, I have been involved in the analysis of a PTRHD1 gene that has been present in individuals exhibiting phenotypes consistent with juvenile parkinsonism. I graduated from ASU in 2020 and am currently applying to PA school.
