I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of California, Merced where I also studied T cell development. Following my undergraduate studies, I moved back home and found a job in Harold Bernstein's lab at UCSF. I started as an SRAI and eventually transitioned into an SRAII and Lab Manager. I currently work in the Pomerantz lab as an SRAII. In addition to helping manage our mouse colony, I also work on a project with the goal of differentiating human embryonic stem cells into muscle progenitor cells that can be transplanted.
