I graduated from UC Davis before working as a research associate in academia and industry for many years. I am currently a Ph.D. candidate at UCL with the London Interdisciplinary Doctoral Programme (LIDo) supervised by Prof. Emad Moeendarbary and Dr. Paola Bonfanti.

My research project focuses on recapitulating the thymus microenvironment in an in vitro microfluidic system and understanding the role of the thymic endothelium during the early stages of T-cell development.
