Where Am I Now?

PhD Work

I am currently a fourth year MD-PhD student at Case Western Reserve University. I’m conducting my PhD in the lab of Dr. Atul Chopra, a physician scientist who studies rare metabolic diseases and the metabolic hormone our lab discovered, asprosin. 

For my PhD, I am studying the neural networks that asprosin is involved with.
