I'm a graduate student at the University of Maryland School of Medicine working on my PhD in Molecular Medicine. My thesis research employs mass-spectromemtry based proteomics to figure out how the low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein 1B (LRP1B) acts as a tumor suppressor. Under the guidance of Dr. Dudley Strickland and Dr. David Goodlett, I use mass spectrometry, bioinformatics and molecular biology to advance knowledge of cancer (and other human diseases).

Outside of science, I have the perk of being the official taste tester for my wife, Nicole, and her awesome baked goods. I also help lead a small group and help as a deacon coordinating the audio/visual team at our church, Jesus Our Redeemer.
