It’s always a treat to sit down with friends to talk shop, and I’ve been privileged to recently be asked to be part of two such conversations that have turned into podcast episodes:

  • in mid-December, I had a fantastic, far-ranking discussion on research and teaching with Kaylan Chakrabarti at Krea University ( while I was traveling in India.  Honored to be a teacher of many things while humbled of being a student of many more – and I think the two complement each other nicely.
  • in early January, I joined my PhD housemate, Vic Myer (, now President and CSO at Chroma Therapeutics), for an hour-long discussion on our different views of biotech from academic and industrial perspectives.  Many thanks to Anna Barry and Yale Alumni Association for making this happen!
