About me...

I am currently a Genentech Fellow of the Life Sciences Research Foundation in Chris Burge's Lab at MIT. I completed my PhD in 2013 in Evan Eichler's lab in the Department of Genome Sciences at the University of Washington. My research interests focus broadly on questions of diversity at different genomic scales. Specifically I'm interested in how aging differentially impacts molecular processes among varied cell types / genotypes / disease states. I currently live in Watertown MA.
