Summary

Highly motivated, translation-oriented PhD research scientist in the last stages of a PhD in neuroscience/biomedical sciences. I am highly adaptable, flexible and thrive in a fast-paced, team-oriented environment where I can put my problem-solving/troubleshooting skills to good use.

4+ years as a neuroscientist and cell biologist, exhibiting successful collaborations among multiple laboratories and research groups to design and conduct innovative experiments. My work has helped to understand neurodegenerative disease etiology, and will result in multiple publications.

Experience in scientific writing, use of social media outlets to communicate science, interviewing scientists about their work, attending conferences and summarizing proceedings, knowledge of a wide range of biomedical and public health topics, and a passion for science communication to a broad audience.

Efficient and economical project manager, maximizing productivity in a team of 10+ scientists, communicating goals and directives to multiple undergraduate students and laboratory managers, while simultaneously optimizing experimental protocols to meet project deadlines.

Strong background in life sciences (neuroscience, cell biology) in addition to experience in the fields of pharmacology, biochemistry, and genetics. Research experience in proteomics, CRISPR/Cas gene editing, neurodegenerative disease pathology, histology, confocal miscroscopy, and molecular biology. I am looking to expand my expertise into cancer biology and therapeutics.

My skills as a scientific communicator and team player combined with a motivation to solve problems and develop biomedical therapies/products would be conducive to companies in the Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina area looking to recruit Science Writers, Academic Editors and Project Specialists.

Education

Graduate Assistant Since August 2014

University of Florida (Gainesville, FL US)

❏ Confident scientific writer, editor, and proofreader with experience authoring multiple manuscripts for peer-reviewed journals, conference posters, and abstracts, leading to effective communication of scientific content to broad audiences.

❏ Innovative, knowledgeable neuroscientist and cell biologist with experience conducting impactful research on mouse and cell culture models relevant to human neurodegenerative disease, resulting in securing $900,000 (NIH over 3 years) and $150,000 (BrightFocus foundation over 2 years) in laboratory revenue.

❏ Strong leader and team player with a track record of successful collaborations between multiple laboratories and research groups, resulting in the completion of multiple scientific projects and the augmentation of scientific impact for both myself and the collaborator. 

❏ Working towards an understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying neurodegenerative diseases including Alzheimer's disease, frontotemporal dementia, Parkinson's disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis with an emphasis on protein homeostasis (proteostasis)

❏ Development and optimization of experimental protocols and SOPs in order to facilitate consistency as well as accuracy in daily laboratory tasks and data management. 

❏ Delegation of tasks to multiple undergraduate students in order to manage multiple projects and gather significant data in a timely manner

❏ Resourceful and proactive networker having attended multiple scientific conferences and meetings (both domestic and international), leading to the development and maintenance of multiple professional relationships.

Awards

T32 Predoctoral Training Grant January 2018

An NIH-sponsored (NINDS) training grant designed to provide: a) training in human movement and cognitive neuroscience b) training in molecular biology and animal models c) training in translational neuroscience and physiology Overall, this opportunity provides not only funding for my graduate stipend, but also expenses for travel and a research stipend.
