I received my PhD in Biology from Clark University, Worcester, MA in 2001. Subsequently, I worked for several years at University of Massachusetts Medical School as a postdoctoral researcher and then, later as an assistant research professor. My formal training is in Structural Biochemistry and Bioinformatics. My research interests are concerned with signalling networks and systems. Presently, I am a visiting scientist collaborating on a large scale systems genetics project in behavioral neuroscience.
