My Research Interests:

My research interests involve the different mechanisms of aging and how they interact with one another. Additionally, how different treatments and compounds modify these mechanisms to improve health-span and lifespan.  

Why I’m Excited to Study Aging:

Aging is a part of life that we understand so little about. It is a complex process involving numerous systems and processes. I find it exciting to work on such a complex problem and try to gain a better understanding of its workings.

My Future Goals:

Help improve the understanding of aging mechanisms and have fun doing science.

Awards and Honors:

  • 2017  T32 Biology of Aging Training Grant
