Undergraduate: University of Chicago, Physics and Mathematics
Origin: Belgrade, Serbia

Research Interests:
I am working on biophysical, biochemical and structural characterization of synthetic prion strains in collaboration with Dr. Prusiner's laboratory at UCSF. I am also interested in using metabolomic profiling by NMR to track the pathogenesis of prion disease.
