Postdoctoral Scholar

Kevin obtained his Ph.D. in Molecular Biology in the laboratory of Dr. Guillaume Chanfreau at UCLA. There he studied environment-dependent RNA degradation pathways in yeast, and developed high-throughput methods to map sites of RNA degradation by nuclear RNA endonucleases. He has a strong background in yeast genetics and molecular biology, as well as in high-throughput sequencing techniques and data analysis. His current interests include quantitative and systems genetics, with a focus on how genetic variation interacts with the environment to produce cellular phenotypes. At Stanford, he will study the consequences of single-nucleotide variants at the genome-wide scale, in order to provide insight into evolutionary processes and how environmental conditions suppress or enhance the effects of genetic variation.
