Career Path: 

I conducted academic research for 12 years in a journey that took me from discovering and characterizing marine natural products (B.S.), to dissecting protein binding interactions (Ph.D.), to studying protein structure and dynamics (post-doctorate). I then moved into Clinical Chemistry, where I currently develop chemical assays for the quantification of analytes in human patient specimens. These assays are useful in clinical settings to aid health professionals in treating patients.
