I am a passionate college football fan, and you can find me on Saturday afternoons in the fall cheering on my beloved Michigan Wolverines. I also enjoy playing with my rambunctious cat Bagel, eating extremely spicy foods, and trivia.

My research background is in the genetic basis of human quantitative traits such as height and the timing of puberty. I am interested in applying my background in genetics to understanding the underlying pathophysiology of neurodegeneration. I am currently working in Jennifer Phillips-Cremins’ lab here at Penn studying the role of RNA binding proteins in Alzheimer’s disease. Following residency, I will be pursuing an R25/cognitive neurology fellowship here at Penn. My goal is to stay in academic medicine and pursue a career as a physician-scientist running a basic science lab.
