I am a graduate student in the Biochemistry and Cellular & Molecular Biology department at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. I am investigating in vivo protein-protein interactions  of Calmodulin Like38 (CML38) and am working towards understanding how CML38 helps Arabidopsis survive flooding stress. I went to The Ohio State University for my undergraduate education, and went to East Carolina University for my masters degree.
