Research Interest:

My interests broadly include combining molecular biology and genetics to study neurodegenerative diseases. During my undergraduate years, I studied the molecular pathology of Huntington’s disease (HD) by elucidating how the mutant huntingtin protein affects cortical and striatal function and communication. My thesis research focused on characterizing the chromatin landscape of HD knock-in mouse models.
