I return to school after graduating in 2004 with a Bachelors Degree in Molecular Biosciences and Biotechnology. Employment at the Translational Genome Research Institute ended after 5 years and I look forward to bringing my knowledge of genetics into the realm of Ecology and Astrobiology. I am currently working on the “Follow the Elements” astrobiology NASA grant. My research is focused the influence that nutrient limitation has on gene expression, specifically focusing on Extremophiles found in Yellowstone National Park and Cuatro Cienegas.
