About Me

Me_01 (2)

A medical biochemistry generalist with over 20 years of research experience discovering and developing new medicines. My efforts have helped expand the medical knowledge-base through peer-reviewed publications and patents. Originally starting out in industry, I found a niche in academia teaching trainees how to be good scientists. I want to continue to use these skills to help communicate high-quality medical science information.
