Tij sometimes refers to me as “One of the lab directors” (the other one being Claire). I like to think of myself as a science factotum (Latin for a person that does all sorts of things).
My job in the lab is to provide technical and scientific support to our postdocs and grad students, and to work with the rest of the staff to keep the boat sailing.
I also work in closer collaboration with some people in the lab to move certain projects forward, contributing my Molecular Biology, Genomics, Biochemistry, Cell & Animal biology and manuscript editing skills.
I love the science and I love the people.
