PhD student (Biochemistry)
I grew up close by in San Jose and later received my bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry/Cell Biology from University of California, San Diego in 2016. There, I worked in a cancer cell biology lab and researched the autophagy pathway in serous ovarian cancers. Currently, I am interested in learning how second messengers in the innate immune system are regulated in cells. When I’m not in lab, I enjoy reading, volleyball peppering, amateur bodysurfing, traveling…and hanging out with my lab-mates!
