Holly has been in charge of the MIC since its inception in 2001, expanding it from an initial two instruments to nearly 20 today. She enjoys learning about exciting new technology and customizing instruments to meet the unique research demands at UC Berkeley. She is still actively involved in training new and experienced users. Prior to the MIC, she worked in the research core at Genentech and in the lab of neuroscientist Carla Shatz (while at UC Berkeley). Studying biomedical engineering and electrical engineering, she received her undergraduate degree from the University of Southern California, and graduate degree from Drexel University in Philadelphia. Outside of the lab, she enjoys hiking, biking, and snowboarding.

Feather handles all things slide-scanner at the MIC, as well as the bulk of the training on the laser scanning confocal instruments and the lightsheets. She is currently working on some educational material for learning FIJI and image processing. Feather is also the Co-Director of Biosciences for Merritt College and Program Director for the Histotechnician certificate. Her extracurricular activities are too numerous to list, but she enjoys spending time with her mother and daughter when not at the lab helping users with all things microscopy and life.
