    My PhD research focuses broadly on developing software tools to unravel the role of highly repetitive DNA in preserving genome structure and function using microscopy and FISH methods.


    I also research, write curricula, and provide consulting services at the intersection of race, gender, sexuality, belonging, and identity within biosciences graduate training programs.


    Through these topics, I lead science communication and illustration workshops at national conferences, biotech startups, and in graduate programs.


    My work has been featured by Nature, the American Chemical Society, the ReclaimingSTEM Institute, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, MIT, Stanford, the National Science Foundation, and the University of Arkansas.
