Sr. Research Associate, 03/2021 - Current
Arcus Biosciences, Inc. Remote Or Hayward, CA,
  • Project overview: Neurobiology of Olfaction

Understanding the therapeutic potential for modulation of olfactory basal stem cells at circuit level. As well as elucidating the neural circuitry link essential for the olfactory neurons degeneration.

Postdoctoral Researcher, 07/2017 - 03/2021
Rutgers University New Brunswick, NJ,
  • Project: Ion channels and neurology

Neurological channelopathies “Customizing magnetogenetics methodology” so that they can become treatment options for chronic sensory disorders such as pain and itch. it provided an exciting aspect of collaboration between clinicians, molecular geneticists, and cell physiologists to provide a new insights into the biological basis of diseases.

In this project I worked with TRP's, CaCCs (TMEM16A), KCC2, TREK, and Piezo ion Channels.

Postdoctoral Fellow, 10/2016 - 03/2017
Missouri Botanical Garden Maplewood, MO,

My doctoral studies provided novel insights into the structure-function relationship of TRPA1. My project provided cues that these mutations or amino acid changes may have enabled shifts in nociception over the course of evolution, while retaining chemical sensitivity in spite of the high degree of sequence differences across species. These studies were published, cited and got press coverage.
