Manusnan Suriyalaksh

My long name is Manusnan, pronounced Ma-Nus-Nan. I’ll be quite surprised if any non-Thai can pronounce it correctly. I also go by Pun, pronounced Bun, as my nickname. I’m originally from Bangkok, Thailand, but spent a great part of six years completing higher education in the US. 
 
I graduated with dual degrees: BA in Biophysics, and BS in Economics (Wharton School of Business). Then went on to complete MS in Computer and Information Technology, all at the University of Pennsylvania, I decided to come closer to home for my PhD and joined Olivia’s lab.
 
With my quantitative skills, I wish to capture some of the staggering complexity of ageing process and get some tangible and concrete answers.
