Research Summary: 

“Measure what can be measured, and make measurable what cannot be measured.”- Galileo

I hope to harness the power of mass spectrometry in the Villen laboratory to make precise measurements of thousands of protein phosphorylation events as cells and interact with the microenvironment. This fundamental knowledge will lay the groundwork for medical advances such as personalized cancer diagnosis.
