Research Interest:

I am interested in conducting research in interdisciplinary cancer biology research with a translational focus. As an undergraduate, I worked in a lab studying bone metastatic breast cancer, elucidating novel dormancy regulators. In addition, I also worked in a clinical research office studying pediatric surgical outcomes, primarily in the pediatric otolaryngology department. Most recently, during my gap year, I worked in a cancer genomics lab studying higher-order genome architecture in myeloid malignancies
