I am gay and I am an analytical chemist.//
I am a Professor in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Minnesota. My research group and I define and apply new bio analytical strategies to make sense out of heterogenous biological systems. In particular, we focus on the analysis of organelles and single cells to answer questions related to disease and aging. This research can only happen if we integrate our humanity and multiple identities into our scientific passion. As such, I am committed to promoting a welcoming and inclusive climate for the LGBTG+ community at my department, my college, my institution and beyond.
