About

I am a Computational Biology Postdoctoral Fellow in the Neurosciences Department at Geisinger Health Systems in Pennsylvania. My work will address a broad number of clinical translational topics including brain cancer biology, big data, Electronic Health Records, and genomics. I am specifically interested in diseases that have large impact but do not currently have adequate treatments or interventions such as high grade glioblastoma and psychiatric illness. I received my PhD from the University of California, Berkeley where I worked jointly in the labs of Michael Eisen and Ellen Robey. My thesis work focus was the fascinating brain parasite, Toxoplasma gondii. I investigated how this parasite causes mice to lose their fear of cats. In the past, I studied protein evolution in Matthew Cordes'​ Lab at the University of Arizona where I earned my Bachelors Degrees in Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics and Psychology. I also spent a year studying neuropsychopharmachology in Amelia Gallitano's Lab at the University of Arizona Medical School.
