Alex received his bachelor's degree in neuroscience from Santa Clara University. He also minored in Spanish and Biology. During his time there, he studied fMRI data to identify patterns of resting-state functional brain connectivity in individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Currently, he utilizes hippocampal slice cultures, cell cultures, and biochemical assays to screen small molecule drug compounds. His research is conducted with hopes to identify novel therapeutics for Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, and X-linked creatine deficiency.
