Research Interests: Molecular pathology and immunological contributions in neurological disorders

About me: I grew up in Jackson, MS, and ventured to the east coast to study chemical engineering in college then three years of post-graduation research in NYC. I'm a pianist and dabble in bass and drums for Doc Opera. Otherwise, I spend a lot of time cooking (though more eating) with all of the kitchen space I finally have in Cleveland. I am also an avid coffee drinker, a habit which fuels my religious adherence to all assigned readings for class. Outside of scientific literature, I occasionally enjoy the social sciences, history, and science fiction. I'm currently working on Will Durant's The Story of Civilization, which I hope to finish before I graduate.
