Biography

Andrew is a Chemistry PhD candidate in the Shalek Lab. He is interested developing novel RNA-seq technologies and studying resistance mechanisms in cancer. He captains the lab volleyball team, Seq-and-Destroy, and plays ice hockey in his free time.

As a chemistry major at Emory University, Andrew worked in Professor Dennis Liotta’s lab synthesizing nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitors.
