I grew up in Santa Monica, CA. I did my undergraduate in Bioengineering at UC Berkeley and then went on to get a PhD in Developmental and Stem Cell Biology at UCSF with Dr. Robert Blelloch. For my graduate work, I studied the regulation of translation and mRNA stability. I became interested in gene regulatory networks and computational biology, so I am doing a joint postdoc with Dr. Jonathan Pritchard at Stanford and Dr. Alex Marson at UCSF. I will be using CRISPR screens and computational analysis to study gene regulatory networks in human T cells. Outside of lab I enjoy cooking, hiking, running, and rock climbing.
