Lou obtained his BS in Psychology (2019) and MS in Biomedical Forensic Sciences (2021) from Syracuse University. He subsequently joined the Auerbach lab as part of the Post Baccalaureate Research Education Program to explore his interest in cardiac disease mechanisms and acquire valuable investigative skills. Lou is currently working on a project to understand why certain therapeutics confer an increased risk of recurrent cardiac arrhythmias in Long QT type 2 (LQT2) patients. As part of this project, we are investigating why LQT2 patients have an increased risk of arrhythmias when on vs. off certain sodium channel-blocking antiseizure medications (e.g., Phenytoin.) He plans to continue this work in the next phase of his career: MD/Ph.D. training.

Lou developed an appreciation for Latin & Salsa dancing after immigrating to the United States from Nigeria. This appreciation turned into a passion that transformed him into an avid social dancer. He also enjoys exploring the various parks and nature trails around Syracuse and neighboring cities. Lou believes his passion for dancing and meeting and learning about new people complements his desire to uncover new knowledge through research.
