I am a postdoctoral researcher in the department of Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) where I am developing a project to understand how estrogen controls female-specific energy expenditure and metabolic regulation of brown adipose tissue (BAT). My academic training and research experience have provided me with a background of scientific disciplines that span molecular and animal biology, cancer biology, nutritional sciences, and endocrinology. In my first year as a postdoctoral scholar I developed two successful collaborations with distinguished labs at UCSF, the Kajimura and Kirichok labs. These collaborations have assisted me to develop a female ThermoMouse model to study in vivo regulation of brown adipose tissue (BAT) thermogenesis in real time and to start to dissect out the mechanisms underlying sex-differences in BAT.
