I am a postdoctoral scholar working with Dr. Matthew Porteus. Gene therapy has been my primary research interest during my doctoral and postdoctoral training. As a doctoral student, I studied the intracellular transport of non-viral gene delivery vectors to optimize delivery. I joined the Porteus lab to further my interest in gene therapy by applying CRISPR/Cas9 based genome editing for monogenic diseases. As a postdoctoral scholar, I have been working on using CRISPR/Cas9 technology to develop an autologous gene corrected airway stem cell therapy to treat cystic fibrosis.
