Research Interest:

I am a recent graduate of Boston College with a bachelor's degree in biochemistry and computer science. I am interested in the mechanisms of human aging and potential interventions to slow or reverse it. It has been shown that the loss of epigenetic information is one of the major causes of aging, and that partial reprogramming can retrieve that lost information. Using a variety of epigenetic technologies, I aim to study the mechanisms of aging and its reversal by epigenetic reprogramming.
