Previous Institution: Brandeis University

Full Research Description: 

In 2019, I graduated from Brandeis University, where I earned a B.S. in Biology, Neuroscience and Chemistry. While my approach to courses was rather interdisciplinary, my undergraduate research had a sharper focus on the role of translational control in gene expression. Specifically, I studied how a noncanonical mechanism of protein translation is modulated during metabolic stress, and how this affects the translational efficiencies of select, pro-survival transcripts.

As a PhD student at Columbia, I hope to grow as a scientist by developing new practical skills, and by broadening my understanding of unfamiliar concepts. At the end of my time here, I hope to have taken into perspective many different approaches toward answering biological questions, and to have found a line of research that I am truly passionate about.
