I was selected as the top science student at UC Berkeley and have advanced projects in 9 different labs. Trained as a MD/PhD, my expertise covers a range of fields and some of my work includes major contributions to small RNA biology and survival analyses with TCGA data. I believe that the best science is performed outside of academia free from its perverse incentives, and as a result I left academia and started my independent career. I contribute to the open science movement by making all of my work publicly available either through blog posts, videos, preprints, or data repositories, and by submitting my publications to PeerJ Preprints instead of prestigious for-profit journals. In addition, I created PrePubMed, "a PubMed for preprints", to help validate the preprint movement.
