I began my graduate work at UNC in 2008 as a member of the inaugural class of the Biological and Biomedical Sciences Program. The following year, I joined the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine and started my research in Dr. Taylor’s lab where I study mechanisms of skeletal muscle development and repair. I am interested in the function of the Rho-GAP GRAF and the role it plays in skeletal muscle maintenance.
