Exceptionally organized, detail-oriented and outcome-focused research scientist, with hands-on experience in LC-MS/MS and MALDI-TOF, coupled with well-honed expertise in mass spectrometry analysis, comparative effectiveness methodologies, curriculum/program design, and research and development. Interested in pursuing a challenging and rewarding career to leverage extensive research, critical thinking, and communication skills in a variety of scientific and research functions, including general biology, cancer biology, neuroscience, cell biology, and molecular developmental biology.

  • Equipped with outstanding organizational and analytical skills in evaluating and revising scientific research processes as well as in improving accuracy and efficiency.
  • Tenacious, quick thinker, and problem solver with the ability to synthesize diverse and complicated information to formulate rapid solutions.
  • Highly adaptable and trainable; able to quickly learn and apply complex technical concepts.

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS SOUTHWESTERN MEDICAL CENTER, DALLAS, TX
Senior Research Scientist | 2010–Present
Lead and manage the provision of high-quality service and consultation for highly-demanding customers. Proactively perform global analysis of SUMOylated (SUMOylation: Small ubiquitin-like modifications) proteins in bovine embryoic fibroblast.

  • Planned, created, and implemented derivatization of hydrophilic peptides to improve retention and identification.
  • Prepared, published, and proposed 2 first authored and co-authored papers.
  • Held full responsibility of routine protein identification (ID) service and consultation as well as the Edman sequencing process.
  • Determined novel neuropeptides against (putative) GPCRs.

Research Scientist | 2005–2010
Worked under the direct supervision of Dr. Yingming Zhao; oversaw the development and optimization of technologies for proteomics studies, including LC-MS/MS technologies for protein ID and PTM sites mapping.

  • Successfully produced 2 first-authored and 11 co-authored papers in high-quality journals.
  • Took charge of maintaining routine protein ID service at a daily sensitivity of 20 fmol or less with minimum keration contamination.
  • Managed the relocation of LC, MS, and related instruments, recreating protein ID service with minimal downtime.
  • Conducted global analysis of sumoylated proteins in bovine embryoic fibroblast.

UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT AUSTIN, AUSTIN, TX
Postdoctoral Fellow | 2004–2005
Played a pivotal role in biomolecule, non-covalent interaction studies under the supervision of Dr. Jennifer Brodbelt upon successful transition from small molecule characterization and quantitation. Contributed in developing and publishing 3 co-authored papers.

  • Modified and implemented mass spectrometry methods for studying biomolecules, such as DNA and DNA/drug non-covalent interactions, and the correlation of solution- and gas-phase data.
  • Researched and investigated the influences of initial charge state and binding mode on the fragmentation patterns of DNA/drug non-covalent complexes.
  • Monitored the selectivity of nucleic acid aptamers as well as the intermediates of important organic synthesis, eventually studying reaction pathways.

Graduate Research Assistant | 2000–2004
Conducted extensive research for structural characterization and developed detection of flavonoids through use of electrospray ionization mass spectrometry and molecular modeling. Wrote and produced 7 first-authored papers and earned a Ph.D. degree in 4 years.

  • Designed and developed three strategies of metal complexation for improved sensitivity (10–100 times) and better differentiation of isomeric flavonoids, eventually applying these methods for analysis of flavonoids in fruits and vegetables.
  • Formed flavonoid/metal complexes and discovered structural factors enabling differentiation of isomeric flavonoids.
  • Determined major flavonoid metabolites after human consumption of grapefruit juice.
  • Investigated and analyzed the conformations, gas-phase acidities, and sites of deprotonation of flavonoids by gas phase hydrogen/deuterium (H/D) exchange, collisionally activated dissociation (CAD), and molecular modeling.
