I graduated from UC San Diego in 2012, with a B.S. in Human Biology. Over the past few years, I have been apart of labs around the world, starting with a stem cell bioengineering lab at my own undergraduate institute, to a cancer research lab at Imperial College in London, to a structural biology lab at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Grenoble. After being away from home for a while, I came back to the Bay Area and became a member of the Passegué lab in June of 2014. Aside from helping other members with their projects and assisting with managerial duties, I am also investigating the bone marrow niche in terms of how different aspects of the microenvironment can be affected depending on various factors. My hobbies include cooking, baking, and traveling to experience new cultures and to meet new people. I hope to attend graduate school in the future and to pursue a career in the stem cell/cancer research field.
