About Me

Iā€™m passionate about the intersections between science/technology and society, policy, and am currently thrilled to be exploring these as an American Association for the Advancement of Sciences Science and Technology Policy Fellow. I currently mostly work on innovation and basic research policy, but my interests span the field.

Iā€™m also the Assistant Editor-in-Chief at the Journal of Science Policy and Governance, where I love being able to keep up to date with current science policy writing and research and enjoy helping early-career authors craft well written science policy analysis and articles.

In 2018 I received my PhD in Molecular Medicine with a focus on cancer biology from the University of Maryland, Baltimore where I focused on non-coding RNAs and their impact on tumorigenic stromal cell differentiation. I followed that up with a postdoctoral fellowship in cancer immunotherapy at the National Cancer Institute where I focused on rapidly bringing combination therapies to the clinic, identifying novel off-label use cases for standard-of-care therapies, and identifying new treatment strategies for underserved patient populations.

I used to review books and interview authors for Reboot HQ, run and edit the National Institutes of Health Fellows Science Policy Blog Science Policy for All, and enjoy a myriad of other volunteer activities in science and science policy.

Outside of work I enjoy good coffee, running far, baking, and helping organize book and board games groups.
