  • Area of Interest RNA-Protein Interactions, microRNA

Originally from Gilmanton, New Hampshire, I pursued my undergraduate education at Saint Michael’s College. After graduating, I joined the Barouch lab at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center as a research assistant, contributing to vaccine development for COVID-19 and HIV. Seeking new challenges, I transitioned to Laronde Therapeutics, a growing biotech company, where I focused on vaccine development using a circular RNA platform. My research at Laronde sparked a keen interest in RNA engineering and stability mechanisms, motivating me to pursue a PhD mentored by Dr. Daniel Cifuentes. In my doctoral studies, I investigate RNA-protein interactions, microRNA dynamics during embryogenesis, and develops tools to advance understanding in these areas.
