I am a Ph.D. student in the Biological and Biomedical Sciences (BBS) program at Harvard. I am interested in defining mechanisms that control SIRT6 expression and function, and how these phenomena contribute to SIRT6’s role as a tumor suppressor. I am an Italian girl hailing from NJ, so naturally my number one hobby is food. I enjoy cooking, eating, and sharing new food experiences with the ones I love. When I’m not eating I’m playing my guitar and singing, which is my creative outlet when I need to escape this crazy life!
