PhD student (Chemistry)
I grew up in southeastern Michigan near Detroit and did my bachelor's degree in chemistry at Cornell University. As an undergraduate, I did research on organic polymers and completed internships studying metabolomics and cancer cell biology. As my interest in biological systems and questions deepened, I went across the pond to the University of Cambridge, where I wrote my master's thesis on the quantification of protein-protein interactions measured by microfluidic techniques. I am interested in studying the molecular mechanisms of disease and particularly the role played by small molecule messengers.
