Educational Background:
Ph.D., Mount Sinai School of Medicine
B.S., Vassar College

Research Project:
In my postdoctoral work I will aim to identify how several distinct mutations, which are highly penetrant for ASD, converge on common cellular phenotypes that alter developmental trajectories to result in disrupted adult brain states, including disruptions in excitatory and inhibitory balance in a 3D cell culture system that allows for emergent properties of brain development to be studied in vitro, such as neuronal migration and network formation.
