Nicole completed her PhD at the University of British Columbia under the supervision of Francis Lynn in 2018. Her PhD research focused on pancreas development and endocrine cell genesis using mouse embryos and human embryonic stem cell differentiation as models. In 2018, Nicole joined Anna Gloyn’s group at the Wellcome Centre for Human Genetics at the University of Oxford. For her post-doctoral studies, Nicole is investigating the role of diabetes associated genes in pancreas development using genome-editing in human induced pluripotent stem cell models. In 2020, Nicole relocated to Stanford University where she will continue her post-doctoral research on the translation of genetic association signals for type 2 diabetes.
