I graduated from St. John's College in Annapolis having studied philosophy and the history of science and medicine by way of working at Kennedy Krieger in Baltimore as a research coordinator of their Fragile X Clinic. As an MD and PhD student, I'm absolutely thrilled to be working jointly in the labs of Dr. Gennarino and Dr. Wendy Chung where I focus on studying genetics neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders.

I enjoy theatre (both making and watching it!), making things, and exploring the city.
