Head of Lab
Lamia did her graduate work at the Carnegie Institute's Dept of Embryology, located on the Hopkins campus. There she worked on R-loops in budding yeast under the mentorship of Douglas Koshland. For her postdoc she moved to Andy Fire's lab at Stanford to study small RNA systems in the free-living nematode Caenorhabditis elegans. She joined Rockefeller as an assistant professor in 2023.
On the weekends Lamia has been walking 20k steps a day exploring NYC with her husband and son!
