I'm a PhD candidate at the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience (NTNU) in Trondheim, Norway. I grew up outside of Philadelphia and studied neuroscience at Boston University. After graduating, I spent two years as a researcher at UCSF while applying to graduate schools. I then entered the PhD program at the University of Oregon, but shortly thereafter found out the lab was moving to Norway! I stayed for a few years and got my Master's degree, then moved here to Trondheim to finish my PhD.
The day I started doing neuroscience research is also the day I met my future wife! We were both hired as undergraduate researchers to work with the same PhD student. We started hanging out outside the lab about a year later, started dating soon after that, and have been traveling the world together ever since. I'm incredibly lucky to have such a wonderful partner at home and in the lab.
In my free time I like to hike, bike, ski, travel, read, and lounge around. I'm into many kinds of beverages (whisky, beer, wine, coffee, tea) and I'm crazy about animals.
