When I was an undergraduate at the University of Texas at Austin, I had the privilege of researching molecular mechanisms for enhancing brain tumor immunogenicity and senescence in Dr. Lu’s lab. I am excited to continue this research by further studying the impact of PP2A inhibition in different sub compartments of the tumor microenvironment within the Dr. Lu’s lab at USCF. In the future, I plan to attend medical school and have a career as a physician-scientist. 

Interests outside of the lab: playing piano, dancing, listening to podcasts
