 B.A. Environmental Analysis, Pomona College, 2011

Research Interests & Projects

I am broadly interested in environmental and genetic influences on health, particularly on neurodevelopmental disorders.

I am currently working on a project investigating environmental and genetic contributions to autism spectrum disorders. Using a birth cohort enriched for autism, I am looking at risk factors related to maternal exposures during pregnancy, including folic acid supplementation and its interaction with maternal genotype.
