Scientific innovation is not just about breakthroughs in the lab; it’s a driving force for competitive business advantage and market leadership. Businesses increasingly harness scientific expertise to develop novel products, enhance existing ones, and streamline operations. As the boundaries between science and industry grow ever more intertwined, the creation, commercialization, and expansion of science-driven ventures will become a cornerstone of economic growth. With a deep belief in the transformative power of science in business, I am poised to deliver significant contributions to companies at the forefront of medical technology, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and healthcare, especially those on the forefront of lifespan and healthspan R&D.

From an early age, I had an interest in the health sciences. I worked as an EMT with a large urban ambulance service, responding to emergency calls throughout Westchester County NY. I also started an E-commerce drop-ship business, securing a contract with a Fortune 500 wholesaler. It became clear to me that science and business had a strong connection. I would go on to complete a Ph.D. in biochemistry and molecular biology, with the goal of working at that exact intersection.

I am completing my postdoctoral research at Boston University’s School of Medicine under the supervision of Dr. Ignaty Leshchiner, a leading expert in computational biology and cancer bioinformatics. My research is strongly linked with The Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, where Dr. Leshchiner was working on groundbreaking projects in genetics, with a strong focus on cancer. During my postdoc, I’ve expanded my expertise in next-generation sequencing technologies, conducted cancer research, and managed the lab. In addition, I mentor and train graduate and undergraduate students in developing advanced DNA sequencing and computational biology techniques. In my previous work with the University of Nebraska Medical Center, in addition to my research, I drafted grants, some of which were successfully funded, and prepared and presented data and findings at numerous scientific conferences, resulting in several awards.
