About Me


I hold a B.S. from Lehigh University in behavioral neuroscience and a PhD from UCLA in neuroscience, where I worked on induced pluripotent stem cell modeling of C9orf72-related motor neuron disease (ALS/FTD) and new generalizable models for neuromuscular disorders.  I previously founded UCLA's [currently disbanded] Bitcoin Club, and have consulted with start-ups in the biotech industry involved in drug discovery for neurodegenerative disease.  I currently work as an Academic Research Advisor with the Good Food Institute (GFI), a non-profit organization acting as a think tank for applying innovative strategies toward creating a sustainable and ethical food supply via plant-based and clean meat technologies.  At GFI, my aims are to increase the activity in plant-based and clean meat-focused research and expand awareness of career opportunities in these fields. My other interests are in stem cells and regenerative medicine, neuroscience, genetic engineering, clean meat, cryptocurrencies, and schedule 1 drugs as medicine.  My blog (that I never update) is a space to propose new ideas and predictions about the future concerning the previously stated topics.
