I am originally from southeastern Pennsylvania. I graduated in 2009 with a BS in Biology from Penn State University. I came to UNC through BBSP in 2009 and joined the Curriculum in Neurobiology. Outside the lab I enjoy playing disc golf.
I joined the lab of Dr. Mohanish Deshmukh in the Cell and Developmental Biology Department. My projects are concerned with exploring metabolic pathways in neurons and looking at changes in the pathway of neuronal apoptosis during neuronal maturation.
