Tamar Feldman, Undergraduate
tamarfeld94 at gmail.com
206 543 4845

Tamar is an undergraduate majoring in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology and minoring in Near Eastern Languages and Civilization. She intends to pursue graduate studies in biology and a career in scientific research. She is particularly interested in protein science, the result of two high school summers spent in proteomics labs. This is a topic she continues to explore since joining the Nemhauser lab in Spring 2013. In her free time, Tamar enjoys painting and calligraphy, all kinds of dance, and learning about different languages and cultures.
Anahit Galstyan, Postdoctoral Fellow

206 543 4845

Anahit joined the Nemhauser lab in April 2011. She received her B.D. from Agricultural State Academy in Armenia in Plant Selection and Genetics. After graduating, she did her M.S. work in Crete in the lab of Panos Kalaitzis at MAICh, working on cell wall proteins in carnations. Next, Anahit joined the lab of Jaime F. Martinéz García in Barcelona for her doctoral work. For her thesis, she worked on identifying new components of the shade avoidance syndrome in Arabidopsis. Here in Seattle, she is studying how auxin and brassinosteroids interact at the transcriptional level. Outside of the lab, she loves to enjoy sunny weather, cooking new dishes and hearing nice music.
Jessica Guseman, Graduate Student

Jessica received a B.S. in Plant Biology and a B.A. in Spanish from the University of Washington in 2006. After graduating, she left academia for a while to identify plants in the woods. She returned to the UW as a technician in the Torii lab where she became especially fascinated with plant molecular biology, researching the role of a callose synthase gene in stomatal patterning. Recently, she joined the Nemhauser lab and is excited to begin her research in various aspects of auxin biology. Outside the lab, Jessica particularly enjoys backpacking in Washington’s mountain ranges, watching really awesome TV shows, traveling with her family, playing with her puppy, and 16 hours of daylight.
Amy Lanctot, Assistant Research Scientist

206 543 4845

Amy graduated from Stanford with a B.S. in developmental and cellular biology. As an undergraduate, she did research on stomatal development, and she is excited to transition to working on the complex dynamics of the auxin pathway. Originally from the Bay Area, she is looking forward to exploring the beautiful trails and mountains around Seattle. Amy hopes to eventually go to grad school, and is especially fascinated by mechanisms of cell fate specification. In her free time, she enjoys reading, traveling with friends, and marathoning TV shows on Netflix.
Britney Moss, Postdoctoral Fellow

206 543 4845

Britney did her PhD at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis with David Piwnica-Worms. Her thesis research used bioluminescence imaging to study the regulation of negative feedback loops in the NF-kB signaling pathway. Britney will be joining the Nemhauser Lab in October 2011 and is excited to develop creative new tools to investigate hormone signaling pathways in plants! She is looking forward to applying her knowledge of molecular imaging strategies to study auxin signaling dynamics. Outside of lab, Britney enjoys volunteering with science outreach programs, teaching, photography, hiking, farmers markets, yoga, eating good food, traveling, and watching cheesy TV shows with friends.
Jennifer Nemhauser, Associate 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.
Anisa Noorassa, Undergraduate

206 543 4845

Anisa is an undergraduate majoring in Cellular, Molecular, and Developmental Biology and minoring in History. After earning her B.S., she hopes to attend graduate school to study biology. When she is not studying she enjoys growing plants, reading, knitting, drinking tea, eating chocolate, and talking about the universe.
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.
Julia Weisbrod, Undergraduate
juliarw at uw.edu
206 543 4845

Julia is an undergraduate majoring in molecular, cellular and developmental biology and minoring in Spanish. She intends to go to graduate school after graduation to continue her education in biology. In her free time, she enjoys baking, making jewelry, spending time with family and friends, reading and volunteering at the Boys and Girls Club in Wallingford.
