I recently earned my Master of Science in Biomedical Science (MSBS) at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC). There I investigated the impact of dietary advanced glycation end products (AGEs) on macrophage MYC and RAGE expression, and how these phenotypic changes support prostate cancer progression.

Currently, I head the Microbiology Department and am the Quality Assurance Officer at SQRD Lab, a cannabis testing lab in Los Angeles, California. I have successfully validated our microbial impurities testing method, and am managing our quality system to support ISO/IEC 17025:2017 compliance.
