“Strong communication skills have been critical to achieving management success and long-term career goals…Being able to build and develop mutual levels of respect and understanding between teams so that they are incentivized to provide support when issues arise has been invaluable.”

“I am also very passionate about encouraging young women to enter STEM fields, so I hope to one day use my career as a platform to support that.”

Upcoming events:

  • Superhydrophobic Surfaces in the Environment and in Biotechnology

    September 19, 2018, 12–1 p.m.

    Stanley Hall

    Michael Grunze, Professor (emeritus) - Institute of Applied Physical Chemistry University of Heidelberg, Germany; Max Planck School of MATTER to Life, Department of Cellular Biophysics

    Super-hydrophobic surfaces have a hierarchical surface topography in the nanometer and µ-meter range and exhibit incomplete wetting when exposed to an aqueous solution, forming a fluctuating thin air layer (plastron) between the solid surface and the aqueous phase. This protects the surface for a limited time from the attachments of cells and bacteria, but with time contaminants adsorb from the...

  • Center for Computational Biology Seminar

    September 19, 2018, 4:30–5:30 p.m.

    Life Sciences Addition

    Title: Two-phase differential expression analysis for single cell RNA-seq Abstract: Single-cell RNA-sequencing (scRNA-seq) has brought the study of the transcriptome to higher resolution and makes it possible for scientists to provide answers with more clarity to the question of ‘differential expression’. Specifically, it allows us to observe binary (On/Off) as well as continuous (the amount...

  • UROC finding a mentor

    September 20, 2018, 5:30–7 p.m.

    Durant Hall

    Ife Ochukwu, UROC

  • Physical Chemistry of Nanocrystals with the Graphene Liquid Cell

    September 21, 2018, 2–3 p.m.

    Hearst Memorial Mining Building

    Prof. A. Paul Alivisatos, UC Berkeley, Chemistry & MSE

    Colloidal nanocrystals have emerged as a major building block for nanoscience and nanotechnology. Today it is possible to control the size, shape, and topology of nanocrystals and to harness the variations of their properties with size to create materials with proven applications in biological imaging and electronic displays, and many more applications under development in renewable energy....
