Experience
01/2020 to Current Staff Scientist Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. | Jackson, MS,
  • Investigated the role of differential affinities of cell-surface proteins in neural circuit wiring and synaptogenesis using Drosophila melanogaster as a model system.
  • Identified a novel and specific role of low-affinity protein-protein interactions in controlling morphogenesis and synaptogenesis at the Drosophila larval neuromuscular junctions.
  • Performed high-resolution and ultrastructural analysis of pre-synaptic and post-synaptic cytoskeletal architecture using Expansion microscopy and Electron microscopy.
01/2019 to 12/2019 Senior Postdoctoral Scholar East Carolina University | Greenville, NC,
  • Mentored fellows, residents, students and volunteer workers to execute assigned tasks with validity.
  • Supervised laboratory personnel and delegated tasks for increased performance.
  • Presented findings using graphics and statistical software at research conferences.
01/2011 to 12/2018 Postdoctoral Scholar Lifespan Corporation | Providence, RI,
  • Performed in vivo genetic screens to identify novel ligands for Drosophila receptor-like protein tyrosine phosphatases.
  • Developed and implemented novel strategies for identification and confirmation of ligand-receptor in vitro protein-protein interactions using modified ELISA assays.
  • Identified and characterized a new ligand for the Drosophila receptor tyrosine phosphatase, Lar, using genetic mutant and RNAi analyses.
05/2006 to 05/2010 Research Assistant University Of Southern California | City, STATE,
  • Investigated the role of C-Reactive Protein in glial activation in the mouse central nervous system (CNS).
  • Characterized the expression of progesterone receptors in the mouse hippocampus during post-natal development.
  • Studied the roles of the hormones estrogen and progesterone in mediating neurite outgrowth in primary glia-neuron co-cultures and established a novel role of the progesterone receptor, Pgrmc1, in mediating progesterone's actions.
