Yuki is a student in the Gene Regulation PhD program. She earned her MA/BA in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry from Wesleyan University, where she developed a passion for understanding genome structure in the lab of Dr. Scott Holmes. Her project there focused on how chromatin remodeling facilitates gene silencing as well as the DNA damage response. She is excited to continue asking questions about chromatin and to study the epigenetic drivers of human corticogenesis. When Yuki is not in lab, she loves to be in the ocean.
