PhD Student (Biochemistry)
I grew up in Boulder, Colorado, where I learned to appreciate the outdoors and developed an interest in the physical world. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry at Brown University where I researched the molecular patterns of emerging antibiotic resistance, particularly in bacterial ribosomes. After completing my degree, I took a year off to travel before beginning my PhD at Stanford. I am primarily interesting in studying the molecular mechanisms of cell signaling, particularly in the context of the immune system and disease.
