I joined the institute in June of 2012. This is a great community to be a part of and I am proud to be here. Each year we continue finding new ways to advance our motivated researchers, and push forward with new technologies and methods. I manage operations in the crystallization and x-ray crystallography cores while supporting the computer graphics core as needed. I am enrolled full time in Washington State University’s Carson School of Business and expect to finish my MBA in 2019.
