Molecular genetics of responses to hypoxia and hydrogen sulfide
Faculty Contact Information
Our research is currently focused on understanding how oxygen and hydrogen sulfide integrate in cellular homeostasis mechanisms. Current projects include understanding how low oxygen (hypoxia) impacts proteostasis mechanisms, understanding the epigenetic responses to hydrogen sulfide, and mapping molecular and genetic pathways that regulate hydrogen sulfide signaling and toxicity.
My goal is to disrupt systemic practices and structures that limit how people from minoritized backgrounds can engage with biomedical research. I am chair of the Biochemistry DEI committee, a founding member of the UW School of Medicine Basic Sciences Task force for justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion, and an active member of the Allies program.
