As an undergraduate at Virginia Tech, I became interested in both the biology of aging and computational biology. I soon began research modeling the effects of oxidation on amyloid beta aggregation, as well as investigating the association of SNPs in miRNAs with longevity. After graduating in 2012, I moved to the Buck Institute to study the interplay between cellular senescence and cancer. I have since developed an interest in stem cell aging, as well as repairing age related damage with stem cells.
