I graduated from the University of California, San Diego with a degree in Microbiology in 2021. During my undergraduate career, I worked in Dr. Philip Gordts' lab to evaluate the impact of human milk oligosaccharides on cardiovascular diseases. I joined IGP in the fall of 2021 and then the Van Kaer Lab in 2022 to further my interest in adaptive immunology. 

Research Information

I'm interested in the role of Vps34, an autophagy-related kinase, in B cell development, homeostasis, and function.
