name is Kathryn ďKatieĒ Gogolin, and I am a PhD student in Dr. Marinus Pilonís
Lab. I have a Bachelorís of Arts from a small liberal arts college in Springfield,
Ohio called Wittenberg University.
After taking a year off from school I went back to get a Masterís of Science
in Biology at the University of Alabama, located in Tuscaloosa,
Alabama. After my Masterís degree I took another year off, this time
living in Vermont. I have currently switched focuses in biology, from ecology
to molecular biology of plants. I am interested in working on copper delivery
in the chloroplasts that is needed for plastocyanin in photosynthesis and
a Zinc/Copper super-oxide dismutase. More specifically, I am interested
in proteomics and protein-protein interactions relating to copper transport
within the chloroplast. Eventually, I would like to teach at a four-year
liberal arts university back east, possibly in the New England area. I enjoy
living in Colorado, even though I am used to more oxygen in the atmosphere
and much more moisture. One of my favorite things to do is take photographs
at Rocky Mountain National Park in my free time.
