Virginia received a B.A. in Chemistry from the College of Wooster in 2010. Upon beginning graduate school in the UW-Madison Department of Biochemistry, she joined the Kiessling Group with enthusiasm and curiosity about the field of glycobiology. Virginia studies biosynthetic enzymes that construct essential cell wall glycans in mycobacteria with a focus on inhibitor discovery. She is an NSF graduate research fellow. Outside the lab, Virginia enjoys composing and performing music with friends.
