I am a scientist, entrepreneur, and investor passionate about planetary and human health.

I hold a PhD in Chemical Biology from The Scripps Research Institute and BS in Biochemistry from Indiana University. I’ve worked in several startups in the fields of immuno-oncology, protein engineering, lab automation robotics, CRISPR, and precision medicine, and have co-founded two companies.

At IndieBio, the world’s leading biotech accelerator, I help scientists become entrepreneurs to solve humanity’s most pressing problems with life itself. My role includes advising companies, program operations, making investment decisions, and fostering community internally and externally.
