I’m an MD/PhD student at the University of Washington. My research interests are in chromatin dynamics during cell fate maintenance, differentiation and dedifferentiation. As a dual degree candidate, I am also looking to advance methods in personalized medicine through statistical and computational learning.
My prior education includes a bachelor’s degree in Bioengineering with an emphasis in Stem Cell Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley. Before matriculating at University of Washington, I worked as a crystallographer in Peter Kwong’s lab at the National Institutes of Health. There, I focused primarily on the development of structure-based vaccine for HIV-1, and trained in the techniques of protein biochemistry and X-Ray crystallography.
In my free time I like turtles, sip coffee and climb rocks.
