I grew up in Brooklyn (before it was cool) and will forever hold my allegiance to the following NY sports teams - Go Mets, Giants, Knicks! I moved westward for graduate school at the University of Colorado, Boulder and UC San Diego in Jens Lykke-Andersen’s lab where I studied post-transcriptional gene expression regulation. In the Laird lab, I am investigating the effects of in utero environmental and chemical exposures on germ cell development, specifically how such exposures may disrupt epigenetic reprogramming. Outside of the lab I enjoy spending time with my family hiking, exploring the Bay Area, and sampling local eat.
