Pharmacology Graduate Student

I graduated from UC San Diego in 2017 with a B.S. in Biochemistry and Cell Biology. After graduating, I worked at Fate Therapeutics in San Diego working with CART cells augmented with small molecules during production before joining the June Lab at the University of Pennsylvania in 2019. In the June lab, I have been involved in projects aimed at understanding T cell dysfunction in the tumor microenvironment and enhancing the efficacy of CART cells in solid tumors. My current interests include the development and translation of cancer immunotherapies with a particular emphasis on adoptive cell therapies. Outside of the lab, I enjoy cooking, playing music, and spending time outdoors either at the beach or in the mountains.
