Zachary Amador is a graduate student in the Genome Sciences program. He is from Laguna Niguel, California and completed his undergraduate studies at University of California, Riverside (UCR). At UCR, he strived to be involved in research as much as possible and to help enable students in underrepresented groups get involved and find funding to do scientific research. He is continuing his research career at University of Washington where he hopes to get his PhD in genetics and genomics. He will be studying gene regulatory systems and chromatin architecture during his thesis under the mentorship of Dr. Andrew Stergachis and Dr. Sudarshan Pinglay. Zachary hopes to continue his passion for outreach during his time as a graduate student to help students find their way in the field of science and inspire undergraduates to pursue research.
