I'm fascinated by proteins as molecular machines and how they function within cells.
When I'm not in the lab or teaching, my hobbies include glassblowing , exploring the ABQ food and drink scene with my husband, or just hanging out with my 2 cats.
I am very interested in the maize stomata development. It will be cool if some proteins can be found to play an important role in the process. In the lab, I can learn more knowledge about maize and various experiment skills. In my leisure time, I like listening to music and reading.
I became fascinated by the story that a microscope image could reveal. The colorful structures I saw the first time I looked at specimens under the microscope drew me into research. I was captivated by the different colors, their meanings, and what caused the different colors. A microscope takes me into a magical world that reveals structures invisible to the naked eye. In my spare time I like to spend time with family and swim.

I am very interested in the study of plant physiology and morphology. I have always been fascinated by the plant metabolism, the biochemistry of photosynthesis and its relationship with the environmental conditions. When I'm not in classes or working on my research I enjoy outdoors activities such as hiking or going camping.
Undergraduate Lab Aide
I have always had a great interest in biology, and I am intrigued by the relationship people have with nature, and especially how that relationship has changed overtime and impacted public policy. In the future, I hope to attend medical school to become and oncologist, and I also hope to stay involved in advocating for healthcare and environmental reform. In my free time, I enjoy doing yoga, gardening, fishing, and beekeeping.
Positions may be available in the lab. Contact Dr. Facette if you are interested in joining the lab!
