I am a visiting undergraduate from MIT studying Chemical-Biological Engineering and Biology. I am interested in the role that DNA damage and epigenetic changes play in the process of aging. Additionally, I am interested in finding ways to reverse their effects, and in translating age-reversal science to therapeutics for the extension of human health span and lifespan. With that in mind, I am currently participating in a study using partial reprogramming to reverse cellular senescence. I hope to advance my education and continue with this line of research as a doctoral candidate in graduate school.
