Stephanie is a graduate of Clarkson University (2015 Biomolecular Science, B.S.), and native to Round Lake, NY. Since graduating, she has gained breadth and depth in a variety of scientific settings; Previously a Research Associate at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, she primarily worked on expanding genome-scale libraries of RNAi and CRISPR/Cas9 reagents and later developing, performing, and optimizing pull-down assays to investigate genes related to myocardial infarction. She hopes to continue building her experience with the great team at UVM and combine her passions for science, health, and lifelong learning throughout her professional life. Outside of the lab, she loves being outdoors (hiking, mountain biking, or learning to sail) as well as experimenting in the kitchen.
