About

Welcome, and thanks for stopping by.

My academic interests include narrative medicine, health policy, neuroscience, and computational biology.

I enjoy writing about my experiences in science and medicine and relating them to large policy issues. Here is a synopsis of my work thus far:

  • My editorials/commentaries drawing upon my research experiences have been published in Cell and PLOS Computational Biology.
  • My editorials and award-winning stories in narrative medicine have been published in Medical Education, Pulse, and The Huffington Post. I have also written a first-author editorial on the importance of graphic medicine that will be published in a forthcoming issue of the AMA Journal of Ethics.
  • My current research focuses on Alzheimer’s disease and the effects of exercise on the brain. I have recently published a review on the therapeutic potential of exerkines in the treatment of atherosclerosis in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences.
  • I have also published several science policy articles at PLOS ECR Community┬áthat were translated and republished at other venues.
