American Heart Association Pre-doctoral Fellowship (2015-2017)
My research interests span across many areas of biomedical research including but not limited to the molecular basis of hereditary diseases such as mitochondrial disorders. For my PhD thesis, I adapted a pathogenic point mutation from a patient that presented with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and myopathy and use this as a tool to unravel the role of the ADP/ATP carrier in the regulation of oxidative phosphorylation in yeast. I look forward to being an established research investigator using innovative tools and state-of-the-art scientific techniques to provide answers to specific medical question(s).
