Amber Hageman, Graduate Student
ahageman at uw.edum
206 543 4845

Amber is a UW Biology graduate student. She received a B.S. in Plant Biology from the University of Washington. As an undergraduate, she studied phototropin-mediated growth and worked to elucidate how light signals influence leaf expansion. She is excited to learn how to combine molecular biology with ecophysiology to better understand plants as complex systems. In her free time, Amber loves to read, hike, cook and make arts & crafts.
Amy Lanctot, Graduate Student
alanctot at uw.edu
206 543 4845

Amy is a graduate student in the Molecular and Cellular Biology Program. Before coming to UW, she graduated from Stanford with a B.S. in developmental and cellular biology. As an undergraduate, Amy worked on stomatal differentiation pathways. She continues to be fascinated by mechanisms of cell fate specification, and her project centers on the influence of auxin in shaping cell fate. Originally from the Bay Area, she enjoys exploring the beautiful trails and mountains around Seattle. In her free time, she enjoys reading, traveling with friends, and marathoning TV shows on Netflix.
Stacey Lowman, Assistant Research Scientist
lowmans at uw.edu
206 543 4845

Stacey graduated from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University with a joint degree in Biochemistry and Philosophy. Her previous research experience was in a computational biochemistry lab where she modeled Amyloid beta. She is excited to work in a ‘wet’ lab and learn about plant biochemistry. Stacey enjoys cooking, baking, proceeding to eat many more baked goods than she should, hiking, biking, dancing, and playing board games.
Jennifer Nemhauser, Professor
jn7 at uw.edu
office: 206 543 0753, lab: 206 543 4845

Jennifer has been studying plant hormones, signaling networks and development for a long time. Before coming to Seattle in 2006, Jennifer did her doctoral work on auxin and flower development at Berkeley with Pat Zambryski, followed by postdoctoral work on hormone interactions during seedling development at the Salk Institute with Joanne Chory. When not in the lab, Jennifer loves to see great art (music, dance, visual art), eat great food, drink lots of tea and forage in secondhand bookstores. CV  Stats
Edith Pierre-Jerome, Graduate Student
epjerome at uw.edu
206 543 4845

Edith graduated from the University of California Berkeley in 2008 with a B.S. in Genetics and Plant Biology and a B.A. in Art History. Having gotten an early taste for plant molecular biology at the Salk Institute while in high school, she is excited to be exploring the intricacies of the auxin signaling pathway as a graduate student. When not in the lab, Edith enjoys poking around bookstores, traveling, watching her favorite TV shows, and eating great food.
Mallorie Taylor-Teeples, Postdoctoral Fellow
mmtt at uw.edu
206 543 4845

Mallorie joined the lab in June 2015 after completing a PhD on the transcriptional network surrounding Arabidopsis root xylem development in Siobhan Brady’s lab at University of California, Davis. Mallorie is interested in studying how biological networks and signaling pathways can be changed or “tweaked” to lead to new developmental patterns. When not in lab, Mallorie enjoys drinking tea, meditating, playing board games, and sewing Victorian and steampunk-inspired costumes.
Clay Wright, Postdoctoral Fellow
wrightrc at uw.edu
206 543 4845

Clay joined the lab in April 2014 after finishing his Ph.D. on the directed evolution of cancer therapeutic switchable enzymes with Marc Ostermeier at Johns Hopkins University. Clay is interested in using directed evolution and synthetic biology to study the evolution of plant hormone receptors. In his free time he enjoys cooking, running, fermenting and exploring the Pacific Northwest.
