I grew up in the small Philadelphia suburb of Medford Lakes, New Jersey before making my way to THE Pennsylvania State University. Here, I earned a B.S. in Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences. Upon graduation, I made Happy Valley my home for two more years, working as a research technician in the laboratory of Dr. Song Tan, where we used crystallography as a tool to elucidate the interactions of chromatin-modifying enzymes with their nucleosome substrates. Currently, I am a graduate student in the MHI program at Vanderbilt, and a member of the Crowe lab.
