Post-doctoral Fellow

Prior to starting my postdoc, I completed my Ph.D. in neuroscience at the Ohio State University studying mechanisms of motor unit physiology and dysfunction in neuromuscular diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and spinal muscular atrophy. I also completed my master’s degree in genetic counseling at Ohio State, where my thesis work centered on genotype/phenotype correlations in titin-related myopathies. Currently, I study aging in the context of adult-onset diseases of the nervous system and investigate the relative contributions of aging and prodromal disease course on symptom presentation and progression. A primary goal is to restore features of youthful states within aging nervous system tissues in order to delay or mitigate the severity of neurological disease.
