Research Description

As an undergrad assistant, I worked with Lankau Lab in UW plant-pathology department on projects concerning the effect of plant-microbial interactions on crop plants disease resistance and forest ecology. My senior thesis with Maeda lab (biochemistry, UW botany department) focuses on the phylogenetic analysis of feedback inhibition of shikimate pathway enzyme DAHPs in the green lineage using chlamydomonas reinhardtii as a model organism.
