Jon grew up in the state of Washington and received his Bachelors of Science degree in Genetics and Cell Biology from Washington State University. He then attended graduate school at the University of Arizona, where he joined the laboratory of Dr. Greg Rogers and his thesis work focused on uncovering the molecular mechanisms involved in centriole duplication. He received his Ph.D. in Cellular and Molecular Medicine in 2014, and shortly thereafter, began work as a Postdoctoral Fellow in Dr. Yamini Dalal’s Chromatin Structure and Epigenetics Mechanisms research group.
