Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute

Postdoctoral Researcher

Ericca received her PhD from the University of California, Berkeley in 2014. Her thesis work, carried out in Abby Dernburg’s lab, was focused on understanding the regulation of meiotic recombination initiation and the formation of double-strand breaks, using the nematode C. elegans as a model system. She joined Duncan Odom's lab as a postdoc in 2015. Her research interests are in understanding chromosomal processes that shape the evolution of mammalian genomes. She is currently working on a project investigating the role of LINE-1-encoded proteins on retrotransposistion and RNA biology. Ericca is funded by a Marie Curie fellowship, and is a College Research Associate at King's College.
