I completed my postdoctoral research at the Whitehead Institute - MIT investigating the molecular determinates of aneuploidy in cancer. In 2013 I joined Genentech as a scientist in the Discovery Oncology department. Our goal is to use a deep molecular understanding of cancer to identify targetable vulnerabilities & contribute to the drug discovery effort.
