About Me

I am currently a postdoctoral fellow with Dr. Max Krummel at UCSF studying antigen uptake and transfer. As of September 2023, I am a co-organizer for Black in Immuno.

I completed my PhD in Immunology with Dr. Ravi Majeti at Stanford University, where I investigated the role of inflammation in acute myeloid leukemia progression in the context of inherited blood disorders and as it relates to chemotherapy resistance and disease relapse. Prior to being in the San Francisco Bay Area, I attended school and worked in Cambridge, MA. I received my B.S. in biology with a minor in Asian diaspora studies from MIT, where I spent the majority of my time studying the behavior of metastasizing cancer cells and the global Chinese diaspora. After graduating in 2015, I worked on untangling host-pathogen biology using single-cell RNA-Seq at the Broad Institute.
