Awards & Honors

I joined Genentech in 2011 as a postdoctoral researcher of Jennie Lill who leads the Proteomics and Biological Resources group. As a member of the proteomics group I used mass spectrometry to investigate post-translational modifications and to identify biomarkers of cell death. During this time I was fortunate to work on many independent and collaborative projects that highlighted the numerous applications of this rapidly evolving technology. In 2014 I was hired as a Scientist in Biomarker Development to lead a group focused on applying mass spectrometry-based approaches to interrogate biomarker hypotheses in our clinical programs. I am privileged to have access to state-of-the-art equipment, incredibly knowledgeable colleagues, and clinical samples that enable us to answer challenging biomarker questions that provide insight into underlying disease mechanisms.
