As an undergraduate I was involved in two interrelated projects to genetically map and characterize two mutants that affect guard cell cytokinesis and cell expansion in Arabidopsis. Due to this research experience I desire to study cytoskeletal dynamics and organization, and/or metabolism and developmental pathways via an interdisciplinary approach involving biochemistry, cell biology, and genetics. Through understanding these fundamental plant processes, I want to help improve agriculture and human health.
