Research Interests: I am using patient-derived induced pluripotent stem cells to model genetic myelin disorders such as Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease.
About me: My primary medical interests are pediatrics and genetics. My research interests broadly include modeling rare diseases with patient-derived stem cells (hiPSCs), identifying and modeling undiagnosed neurogenetic diseases, and gene editing.
