Born and raised in Seattle, WA, Devon moved to the Bay Area to study Molecular and Cell Biology at the University of California, Berkeley. While studying at UC Berkeley, Devon worked as an undergraduate research assistant at the University of California, San Francisco studying compound activity against prion virility. Upon graduating (with a minor in French) in 2015, she returned to Seattle to work as a research assistant at the Infectious Disease Research Institute (IDRI) in the Tuberculosis Drug Discovery group. There, she primarily worked on target identification, isolating compound-resistant tuberculosis mutants and characterizing their mutant genome and associated phenotypes. After moving to Ann Arbor in 2018 (with her two cats) to pursue a PhD through the University of Michigan PIBS, Devon joined the Baldridge lab and the Cell and Molecular Biology program in May 2019. Devon’s current project looks beyond the ER to investigate a Golgi-specific protein quality control mechanisms called the Dsc complex by developing a functional genomic screen.
