About Me

After completing my undergraduate degree in Developmental Biology at the University of California, Merced in the spring of 2019 I moved to the upper valley to start my PhD in the MCB program at Dartmouth. My interest in immunology first began when I learned about the concept of immunotherapies as a sophomore in college; however, it was not until I took an immunology class that I was absolutely in love with this field and was committed to learning more about it.  I was utterly fascinated by the organization of the immune system and all its intricacies that lead to the wide array of immune responses within our bodies. As an undergrad my research primarily focused on immune cell fate decisions but upon joining the Huang Lab in 2020, I shifted my focus to tumor immunology. My current work investigates the role of myeloid cells in maintaining and generating skin tissue resident CD8 T cells in a melanoma associated vitiligo mouse model. I am passionate about science communication, teaching, writing and outreach. Outside of lab I enjoy spending time with family and friends, baking, crafting and enjoying nature.
