Research Interests:

The consequences of alternative polyadenylation are felt in key biological processes like gene regulation, cell proliferation, differentiation, and senescence, resulting in physiological and pathophysiological outcomes. To that end, I am interested in studying these dynamics within the context of neurodegenerative diseases to establish APA-based prognostic biomarkers as well as unravel pathogenic mechanisms.

Education and training:

Originally from Cupertino, CA, I am a 4th year MD/PhD student at the Baylor College of Medicine. Outside of research, I enjoy working with animal shelters and visiting national parks.
