I received a B.A. in Neuroscience from Scripps College in Claremont, CA. I did my graduate work at Northwestern University in the lab of Dr. Peter Penzes. There, I examined the roles of several schizophrenia- and autism-associated proteins in the regulation of dendritic and synaptic structure in mammalian cortical neurons. I received my PhD in Neuroscience from Northwestern in 2012.
In the Philpot Lab, I am currently examining the role of the Angelman syndrome gene UBE3A in regulating sleep and circadian rhythms in mice.
