Short Biography

I am an easy-going science enthusiast. I enjoy board games, archery, hiking, and fencing. The family I go home to every night is my dog (Newton), my cat (Tali), and my bird (Raziel). My Ph.D. work focused on visualizing translation in living cellsusing fluorescence microscopy. As a postdoc in Jason Shepherd’s lab I am aiming to establish similar live-cell imaging techniques in neurons to study genes related to plasticity and neurodegenerative diseases.
