B.S. in Biological Sciences with Chemistry and Italian minors from the University of Pittsburgh; Pittsburgh, PA

Research Interests:

I am researching the genetic basis of hindlimb evolution in Anolis lizards. Through comparative analysis, my lab identified hindlimb enhancer B (HLEB) as a candidate for the differences in hindlimb length, as several lineages of short-limbed anoles have independently evolved deletions in this enhancer. I am using CRISPR-Cas9 mutagenesis to generate HLEB deletions in the long-limbed Anolis sagrei. I will use these lizards to determine whether mutants recapitulate short-limbed phenotypes and gene expression.
