Rachel served two stints as our lab manager, during the spring of 2016 and from the time of her graduation in the summer of 2017 through May 2018. Rachel was largely instrumental in setting up the lab, maintained our Chlamydomonas cultures, expressed and purified protein, biochemically characterized purified proteins, prepared chemical reagents, buffers, and culture media, and generally ran the lab. She worked on biological and genetics projects with various motor protein constructs, and engineered motile biological microstructures from cytoskeletal elements.
