I'm was a grad student at UCSF in the Ptáček lab, where I finished my PhD in neuroscience in March 2010. I've worked primarily on thyrotoxic hypokalemic periodic paralysis (though I'm not touching the article given the COI issues surrounding my position in the field). I am currently a post-doc at the Deutsches Zentrum für Neurodegenerative Erkrankungen (DZNE) working on neurocognitive disorders. I'm slowly going through and modifying the ion channel and channelopathy pages since that's what I'm an expert in. I did a little work on the Lima, Ohio page, since I'm from there.
