I am a 6thyear MD-PhD interested in the intersection of cell biology and neuroscience in the context of neurodegenerative disease. After finishing my undergraduate degree in Chemistry at Franklin & Marshall College, I spent one year in France pursuing a Master’s degree in Biochemistry under a Fulbright grant. My research interests have evolved over time from organic chemistry, to human genetics of cholesterol metabolism and atherosclerosis, and now to cellular and molecular neuroscience, which feels like the right place for me. In my free time I like to climb rocks, try to build things out of wood, attempt to keep plants alive, and read books.
