My graduate training in the Quarmby lab really whet my appetite, and I wanted to further understand the relationship between centrosomes-cilia, cell division and differentiation in mammalian cells, particularly as it relates to problems in human health. I moved to California to pursue my postdoctoral studies in Tim Stearns’ lab at Stanford. In the Stearns lab my postdoctoral research is focused on: (1) Identifying regulators of centrosome and cilium assembly, this time using an innovative mouse tracheal epithelial cell culture system, and (2) Determining the consequences of abnormal centrosome and cilium function in human disease, particularly cancer. I am currently applying for faculty positions, and hope to one day follow in the footsteps of my wonderful mentor Lynne!
