Ms. Auberry has been with PNNL since 2000. Her work in the Fungal Biotechnology Group makes use of her prior experience in microbial systems to enable studies of both fungi and algae using mass spectrometry based proteomics. Other past projects have also included the design and implementation of a laboratory information management system (LIMS) to track and report data for the Genomes to Life (GtL) project.

In addition to her extensive experience in preparing biological samples for ESI-LC-MS/MS, she also has expertise in the analysis of proteomics data, and is able to utilize her skills with relational databases, statistical software, and data visualization methods to bring new insights into fungal systems.

Research Interests

  • Fungal and algal proteomics

Education and Credentials

  • MS in Chemistry from Purdue University
  • BA in Chemistry from University of Tennessee at Chattanooga
