I’m Alexis Stutzman, a current PhD candidate at UNC Chapel Hill. I study the molecular determinants of genome and nuclear organization and their changes across organismal development. While my current research at UNC Chapel Hill studies this question in D. melanogaster appendage development, my previous work at the University of Chicago used a mouse model to identify the molecular basis of laminopathy-related cardiac defects, including fibrosis and dilated cardiomyopathy. Outside the lab, I study religions, sociological thought, and American hip hop culture. Connect with me on Twitter and LinkedIn.
