I am a molecular/cell biologist with extensive assay development experience. After many years doing research in the pharmaceutical industry, I joined Washington University in 2012. As such, I have held previous positions in the Biochemistry and Biology departments. I am currently applying my skill set to better understand cancer genomics.

In my spare time I enjoy activities with my family in St. Louis, Nashville and Chicago. You can also find me on the basketball court where I play weekly with other folks in the medical school.
