I did my undergraduate at the University of Washington in Seattle, double majoring in computer science and cellular/molecular biology. As an undergrad, I worked in yeast and C. elegans looking at the regulation of lifespan through hormetic stressors such as hypoxia and dietary restriction. I joined the Hunter lab in Summer of 2013. Currently, I work on understanding how two isoforms of a phosphodiesterase can differentially regulate the growth of NSCLC. Outside of lab, I enjoy homebrewing, sampling craft beer all around San Diego, and of course, rotting my brains out with video games such as Elder Scrolls, WoW, DiabloIII, and SCII.
