The coursework that I have completed includes college level General Biology for Majors, Evolution, Genetics, Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Neuroscience, Neuroanatamy, and Neurochemistry. My areas of research include molecular biology, immunology, genetics, epigenetics, and developmental biology.
I took honors statistics as an undergraduate psychology major and received an A-. I have not taken an advanced class in statistics, but I have been helping undergraduate students work statistic problems for non-math majors. I earned a bachelors in psychology, a bachelors in biochemistry, a doctorate in cell biology, and have been a coauthor on three peer-reviewed publications. I was first author on one of these publications, which means I conducted most of the experiments, wrote the manuscript, and conducted the statistical analysis of the results in collaboration with a departmental statistician. So, I have had statistics course work and have applied statistics in real-world situations.
As a biochemistry major I took honors genetics and was one of the few who got an A in the course. After graduation I pursued and earned a doctorate in cell biology, then spent the next 5-6 years in an immunology laboratory working on the genetics of asthma susceptibility. Accordingly, I am a first author on an epigenetics peer-reviewed publication and a second author on another publication addressing the functional significance of non-coding single nucleotide polymorphisms. My responsibilities were to locate and characterize epigenetic features emcompasing a gene linked to childhood asthma.
