Hi! I am a MD/PhD student in the UCLA-Caltech Medical Scientist Training Program. Prior to becoming a Bruin, I studied bioengineering and computer science at Stanford University, where I was fortunate to be advised by fantastic research mentors Dr. Roger Kornberg and Dr. Justin Annes. I find the iterative cycle of data-driven hypothesis generation, creative experimental design, and modeling an incredibly exciting and compelling approach to science. I love learning new techniques (whether wet lab or computational!) and applying them to explore the mechanisms of disease—and to identify potential therapies.
Outside of lab and coursework, I have enjoyed volunteering at one of Stanford’s free student-run clinics as well as a regional student-run computational biology conference. As an undergraduate, I also had the amazing opportunity to serve as a Peer Health Educator and mentor in a Stanford freshman dorm. In my free time, I love playing piano and volleyball. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me if my background aligns with any of your interests!
