My undergraduate and medical training began in Berne, Switzerland. After transitioning to the US to continue my medical training, I joined the Department of Medicine at UCSF as a Clinical Fellow in Endocrinology. I will become a member of the Ingraham lab on 7/10/20 where I hope to engage in cutting edge research at the interface of skeletal health, metabolism, and aging. I am interested in how other tissues, such as the brain affect bone health, especially during the aging process or in poor metabolic health. I hypothesize that defining the molecular and cellular signatures of unhealthy bone, especially in females, may reveal new endocrine pathways that contribute to the overall metabolic decline experienced by postmenopausal women. Results could provide new therapeutic avenues to overcome metabolic dysfunction and aging.
