What do you do in the O’Neill lab?
A lot of CRISPR. I’m using it to make some interesting reporters of clock function and also to knock out some of the clock mechanism.
What is your favourite thing about being in the O’Neill Lab?
It’s fun but we also work on big questions. It makes you get out of bed in the morning.
Do you have a favourite piece of scientific trivia?
I like the chance events in science. Like how Fleming discovered Penicillin by accident because he left a culture plate too long. I’ve left many a culture plate too long and am waiting for this kind of accidental breakthrough.

If you had super-power, what would it be?
