I am a Research Programs Manager in the Churchill Group. I assist Dr. Churchill in the management of his projects and accounts; prepare content for grant applications and reports; design and maintain the Churchill website; curate the Churchill group's data resources; rewrite and edit manuscripts; coordinate group events. I am also the Program Manager for the Center for Genome Dynamics and the Jackson Laboratory Nathan Shock Center of Excellence in the Basic Biology of Aging.
Prior to joining The Jackson Laboratory in Sept 2008, I was Research Director of the Institute for Genomics & Systems Biology at The University of Chicago. In this role I was responsible for promoting research collaborations, developing outreach programs and overseeing the administrative affairs of the Institute.
My postdoctoral studies were performed at The University of Chicago where I investigated gene and genome duplication events in Victoria Prince's lab, and the evolution of nervous system patterning in Christopher Lowe's lab (now at Stanford University).
My academic career started at University College London where I received my PhD in Genetics in 2002 investigating the developmental genetics of head development in the stalk-eyed fly.
