Advanced Biochemistry Research with Dr. Melanie Berkmen, 2017 - 04/2017
Microsoft Corporation Iselin, NJ,
  • Read primary literature related to the highly conserved Kreb's cycle enzyme fumarase, fumarase deficiency, leiomyomatosis and renal cell cancer related to mutations in fumarase
  • Utilized site-directed mutagenesis to make mutation Met195Thr in human recombinant His6-tagged fumarase
  • Purified and characterized protein, discovering that fumarase (Met195Thr) has reduced activity in vitro compared to the wild-type enzyme
Senior Researcher, 08/2016 - 04/2017
Ricoh Americas Corporation Southfield, MI,
  • Carried out a forward genetic screen to find novel regulators of ​rpoS​ in ​E. coli 
  • Isolated a plasmid containing an intergenic DNA transcript that may regulate the rpos gene in E. coli
  • Determined the mechanism by which the regulator affected rpoS by using several different rpoS'-'lacZ fusions
  • Performed many Betagalactosidase assays on different E. coli strains
  • Successfully cloned an E. coli strain lacking the 5'UTR of ChiP 
Intern, 05/2016 - 08/2016
