I do scientific consulting for biotech and academic startups. I am currently working on projects for Mendeley Research Networks, BioKM, and other life science startups.

Previously, I was the senior Assay Development Scientist at Genalyte, Inc, responsible for development of macro- and small molecule assays on the platform.

My PhD work at Tulane involved self-guided experimental research on the relationship between Human Adult Stem Cells and multiple myeloma. My areas of expertise are bone biology, multiple myeloma, adult stem cells, animal models of bone disorders, and assay development.

English fluently, French less so, Spanish even less so, Happy to speak some mangled Google Translate languages with you, though.
