Thelma Madzima, Ph.D.
Dr. Madzima received her Ph.D. in Plant Molecular and Cellular Biology from the University of Florida, in 2009. Prior to coming to UW Bothell, she was a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Biological Science at the Florida State University.
Her research emphasis is on the mechanisms of epigenetic regulation of gene expression in plants. She is particularly interested in understanding how plant epigenomes respond to environmental stress stimuli, using Zea mays (maize) as a model organism.
