I'm a PhD candidate at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, in the Computational and Systems Biology program. I work in Ernest Fraenkel's lab, studying Huntington's Disease - a fatal neurological disorder that, so far, has no cure. I develop software tools and analyze high-throughput data in order to produce novel insights into this disease.
I am also the Executive Co-Chair of Graduate Women at MIT, a student-led organization dedicated to the personal and professional development of graduate women. I am passionate about issues of representation and discrimination of women and minorities in STEM and other male-dominated fields.
The rest of my time, I play Ultimate Frisbee. I am currently captain of the Get Flat summer league team. I am an alumni of the Wellesley Whiptails, as well as various Boston Ultimate hat teams.
I got married in 2014 to my best friend, Eric Kedaigle. For wedding or marriage-related things, you can check us out on Offbeat Bride or Gen Y Gets Smart.
