I am currently studying the integration and coordination of cellular signals to generate specialized behavior (stinging) in sea anemones and other cnidarians. I am a lifelong learner, and my interests span diverse fields, from history to economics to the life sciences, and I am strongly driven by a desire for constant active development.
