Research Interest:

My interests broadly include combining molecular biology and genetics to
study disease. 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 undergraduate thesis research focused on characterizing the chromatin
landscape of HD knock-in mouse models. Outside of lab, I enjoy hiking,
reading, baking, catching up on TV shows and movies, and annoying my cat.
