I currently lead the bioinformatics team at Loyal, an early-stage biotech startup dedicated to extending the lifespan and healthspan of dogs. We're generating and mining massive epigenetic datasets to characterize aging at an unprecedented resolution, and developing companion canines as a translational model for aging research.
Previously, I did my PhD in Dr. Ami Bhatt's lab at Stanford University, where I used advanced genomic techniques to study the human microbiome. I'm proud to say I characterized the first examples of bacteria transmitted between the microbiome of adults and of phages transmitted from the microbiome of a mother to her infant.
