Biosketch and Research Interests

Joza received her B.S. in Chemistry from University of California, Merced in 2015, where she conducted research under the tutelage of Dr. Meng-lin Tsao and former graduate student Shuo Chen (now Dr. Chen) involving a multi-step synthesis of a 2-naphthol tyrosine analog for a site-specific protein modification.

Joza graduated with her Master’s in Chemistry from Middle Tennessee State University under Dr. Scott Handy in the spring of 2018. Her thesis work explored aurone dye potential which involved the syntheses of novel aurone analogs, toxicity assays, and UV-Vis spectrometry analyses.

Joza joined the Lindsley Lab in June 2018 as a Research Assistant working on a collaboration between WCNDD and Ono Pharmaceuticals.
