I am excited to be back at UC Berkeley as a distinguished research fellow of the California Institute for Quantitative Biosciences (QB3). If you are interested in working or collaborating with me please do get in touch.

I was a postdoctoral fellow in Pat Brown's research group in the Biochemistry department at Stanford University, supported by a fellowship from the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation. I used bioinformatics and experimental methods to learn exciting things about post-transcriptional gene regulation. After Pat's lab closed down, I spent a year down the coast at UC Santa Cruz working on an exciting genome evolution project with Ed Green, the guy who brought you the Neanderthal genome sequence, in the Paleogenomics Lab.

I did my PhD in the Molecular & Cell Biology department at UC Berkeley with Steven Brenner, and my undergrad degrees were in math and biology at MIT.

In my free time, I do Irish step dance and build industrial fire and light art with Ardent Heavy Industries / Interpretive Arson.
