I am originally from New Jersey and came to RPI as an undergraduate in 2013 studying Chemical Engineering. After obtaining my B.S., I remained at RPI and joined the Dordick Lab to pursue a PhD.
B.S. in Chemical Engineering - RPI (2017)
My research focuses on remote gene regulation using magnetic fields, known as magnetogenetics. I will continue the work that has been done in collaboration with Dr. Jeffrey Friendman at The Rockefeller University and Dr. Sarah Stanley at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. I will be studying possible applications for magnetogenetics in Alzhiemer's Disease research.
