Jennifer Lachowiec, PhD
For my undergraduate degree, I studied genetics, anthropology, and leadership at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In the laboratory of Scott Kennedy, I investigated the process of nuclear RNAi in the model nematode Caenorhabditis elegans. Curious about roles of mechanisms that regulate the translation of genotype to phenotype, I joined the lab of Christine Queitsch through the Molecular and Cellular Biology Program at the University of Washington, Seattle, where I was a NSF Graduate Research Fellow. In the fall of 2013, through a NSF GROW award, I visited the lab of the computational geneticist, Örjan Carlborg, in Uppsala, Sweden, at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. I completed my PhD in 2014.
From October 2014 to September 2017, I have been working as a Post-Doctoral Fellow in Trisha Wittkopp's lab at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor in the department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology in the NIH Genome Sciences Training Program and as a NIH NRSA Fellow.
I will be starting my lab at Montana State University November 2017.
