I am an investigator at the Center for Genetic Medicine in Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C., and an assistant professor in Integrative Systems Biology at the George Washington University. I received my PhD from the George Washington University in Genetics in 2005. My dissertation research involved molecular profiling of neuromuscular junctions using laser capture microdissection. My postdoctoral research involved using the torpedo electric fish as a model to understand the protein makeup of human electric synapses. My second postdoctoral research involved protein profiling of pediatric brainstem tumors.
