I received my Ph.D. in Michael Freeling’s lab at U.C. Berkeley and post-doctoral training with Zacheus Cande at Berkeley and John Sedat at U.C. San Francisco. My training is in maize genetics and cell biology. As a professor in two departments (Plant Biology and Genetics), I have focused on the study of plant chromosome segregation. I have maintained an active and funded lab since 1995, and nearly all of those trained here have gone on to productive careers in science. See what past members of our lab have done and where they are now – http://www.dawelab.org/alumni.
