Research Interests

As a GenOM ALVA intern during the summer of 2016, Aria worked in the Carothers Lab. Her project focused on integrating T7 RNA polymerase variants into biological pathways so as to increase the possible control of pathways in general. Since ALVA, she has continued working in the Carothers lab as an undergraduate research assistant. She has contributed to several research projects including the quantification of metabolic burden per output in heterologous expression systems/feedback inhibition circuits and the development of a complex oligosaccharide biosensor from an enriched RNA aptamer.
