|Biography:||Jennifer was born and raised in the upstate of South Carolina. She grew up only a stones throw from the Blue Ridge mountains which fueled her love for the outdoors and nature. She was a very active child and loved visiting her favorite city Charleston, SC frequently. She is a 2008 graduate of the University of South Carolina with her BS degree in Biological Sciences. After college she was hired to be the Biotechnology Professional intern for The Land attraction at Walt Disney World's EPCOT park. After her internship she dabbled in industry but decided she wanted to try her hand in research. She applied for a position at the LSBI at Mississippi State and the rest is history. Jennifer is the laboratory manager for The Institute for Genomics, Biocomputing and Biotechnology and is also the facilities manager for the Pace Seed building. |
|Research Interest: ||Jennifer has been involved mostly with proteomics research alongside Dr. Tibor Pechan and Dr. Mariola Edelmann on various projects. She is proficient in MALDI and LC-MS/MS for various machines that are housed at The IGBB. Her favorite machine to use is the Thermo LTQ Velos however she is proficient in using the ABSciex MALDI 4700, Thermo LTQ OrbiTrap and the Waters G2-S Xevo. Along with being able to operate and maintain the four mass spectrometers and the LC systems at the IGBB, she is also the primary user of the Covaris-S Ultrasonicator system where she helped develop new and useful sample preparation methods.|
|Hobbies:||Jennifer is a certified Pilates reformer instructor. She enjoys reading, nature and spending time with her dog. Since moving to Mississippi, she has developed a love for the food and people here and hopes to learn more about the history and the culture of this great state. |
