I am the primary technician for the Pritzker Laboratory for Molecular Systematics and Evolution, which means I get to be involved with pretty much every DNA research project. My role is to provide technical support to all the lab users: graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and research scientists at The Field Museum or another institution.
I also carry out all aspects of DNA sequencing for a multitude of organisms that are the research focus of four curators from the Zoology (Divisions of Birds and Insects) and Botany Departments.
