    Alex graduated from UC Berkeley in 2017 with a B.A. in integrative biology (evolution, ecology, and organismal biology division) and molecular and cellular biology (developmental genetics division). He started at UCSF in Spring 2012 working under Dr. Pierre-Antoine Gourraud in the Multiple Sclerosis Genetics Research Lab. There, he developed skills in computational biology, informatics, and statistics. In Fall 2013, he moved to the Grinberg lab at the Memory and Aging Center where he now studies the early pathology of Alzheimer's disease using techniques within unbiased stereology, neuropathology, immunohistochemistry, advanced optics and microscopy, and statistics.

    His main interests with Dr. Grinberg are:
    1. The molecular pathology of tau and the protein evolution of neurofibrillary tangles.
    2. Clinical correlates of tau pathology in Alzheimer’s disease, emphasizing neuropsychiatric symptoms related to early subcortical pathology.
    3. White mater degeneration in Alzheimer's disease, with particular attention paid to the roles of tau pathology as a contributing factor.

    Additionally, Alex has taught and currently conducts zoological research under Dr. Alan Shabel at UC Berkeley where he studies dexterity, ethology, and nervous system evolution in the taxon Carnivora, with a particular focus on otters and central African wetland ecosystems. He plans on pursuing a career in academic medicine researching brain evolution, neuroethology, development, and pathology, as well as working with patients suffering from neurodegenerative diseases.
