My research has ranged from developing green synthesis methods in an organic chemistry lab, to studying the complex genomic networks regulating tissue regeneration in sea squirts, to founding a diagnostic testing laboratory for cannabis that I operated for nearly 6 years.
I taught for a combined seven years at the university level as both a TA and instructor. Now, I contribute to various projects focused on decentralized data ownership and scientific publishing in web3. I've participated as an active member in a range of DAOs across the Ethereum and Near Protocol ecosystems. My experience as a biotech founder lends a broad entrepreneurial skill set to my work.
Outside of work, I enjoy doing more weird things. My favorite creative outlet is practicing and performing with fire. I also consider myself a lifelong musician and artist. During grad school, I began building art installations at music festivals and selling vortex water fountains on Etsy as a side gig. My thoughts tend to sprawl out laterally as I attempt to connect ideas into larger patterns. Web3 and DAOs combine my passion for being creative with my analytical side that's fascinated by the evolution of complex network topologies.
