Hello! I just got my PhD from the (Biology) department here at MIT. I did my thesis in the laboratory of Dr. Phillips W. Robbins and my thesis project involved studying cell wall mutations in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. I didn't work alone, I had three cool and spiffy UROPs Craig Horenstein, Amy Marie Yu and Johanna Bobrow. Craig graduated 2 years ago, Amy graduated last year and Johanna will finish up this year. I also worked closely with Barbara Osmond, the technician sent by the Gods. She's really cool and taught me everything I know about yeast genetics.

There is actually alot known about Saccharomyces. Recently, the entire genome was sequenced. There are several other sites which allow for lots of access to the information that researchers have gathered about the genes and their functions. For example, there's the Yeast Genome Project Page, the Organism Databases listing, and MIPS. I have an entire page devoted to Biology Links which is also interesting. There is even a page devoted to Saccharomyces cerevisiae lab links!

But I don't just spend my time doing biology....

I'm a brother of Alpha Phi Omega (APO) I'm also very interested in computers. I guess that's proven by the fact that I'm a member of SIPB and a SIPB webmaster.

There are other things that I'm interested in as well....

(Cute picture of
orange construction cones)This home page is really just an experiment for me in writing in HTML.... so I guess you could say that it is permenently under construction.

Well, I need to return to being a graduate student...... I'll put up more later.

Oh, but if you want to find some of my friends' homepages, look in here
