Originally hailing from Boston, MA, I journeyed to the sunny shores of Los Angeles, CA to receive my B.S. in Biological Sciences from the University of Southern California. I next worked as a research associate at the University of California-Los Angeles for three years exploring the influence of epigenetics and chromatin architecture on cardiac disease. I am profoundly interested in exploring the ways in which genetics, molecular biology, and medicine intercalate. In my spare time, I enjoy hosting dinner parties for friends, attending live shows and concerts, and going hiking and camping in national parks.
