Background and Motivations
I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. I did chemical biology-oriented research under Mark Distefano, where my primary project was focused on the synthesis and characterization of two-photon photoactivatable protecting groups for the caging and subsequent release of thiols. I am interested in interrogating biological systems and their problems using unique chemical approaches. By using novel chemistries to make both bioorthogonal and biocompatible tools, we can hope to better understand, and subsequently solve, problems that arise in living systems.
