I received my dual bachelor’s degrees in Molecular & Cell Biology and Pathobiology from the University of Connecticut in 2019. Since then, I have been working as Dr. Robert Davey’s Senior Research Technician at Boston University’s National Emerging Infectious Diseases Laboratories, where I have conducted research on viral-host interactions and antiviral therapeutic discovery for a wide range of pathogens, including Ebola virus, SARS-CoV-2, and Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever virus. I am interested in the use of viruses as therapeutics themselves, particularly for the treatment of cancer, as oncolytics, vectors for gene therapy, and immunotherapy. Out of the lab, I am an avid shooting sports enthusiast, predominantly focusing on archery (I shoot both for fun and competitively, have coached other competitive archers, and serve as an instructor trainer to certify other coaches).
