Understanding the Function of Chibby and its Binding Partners in Ciliogenesis
  • Biography

My interest in science research started in high school when I participated in electrophysiology work under Dr. James Dilger in the Stony Brook Anesthesiology Department and continued from then onward. Since my first exposure, I have also worked under Dr. Oleg Gang from the BNL Center for Nanomaterials to create novel arrangements of nanoparticles with unique properties. After completing a B.S. in Biology with a concentration in neuroscience at Stony Brook University, I matriculated in the Stony Brook Medical School and joined the MSTP. I am currently
actively engaged in work in the Stony Brook Orthopaedics Department under Dr. David Komatsu in the field of nerve regeneration.
My hobbies include swimming, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, music and building things. My aim is to learn to use the rigorous scientific approach and apply it to science-based advancement in the practice of Orthopaedic Surgery.
