Our lab is very active in outreach activities. We have hosted several High-school students and will soon start hosting 7th and 8th graders from a local Middle school in Raleigh.
Research in our lab is focused on targeting mechanisms for tonoplast proteins in Arabidopsis. We use chemical genetic approaches and have identified novel inhibitors of tonoplast protein trafficking.
I have a Biology degree from Universidad de los Andes and a Ph.D. in Plant Biology from the University of California-Riverside. I had postdoctoral training in the laboratory of Dr. Natasha Raikhel from the Center of Plant Cell Biology at UC Riverside.
